NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a man bled to death outside a Brooklyn restaurant after he fell on a broken bottle during an argument.
The incident happened at 4 a.m. Saturday in the borough's Flatbush section.
Witnesses tell police two men were involved in a dispute inside the eatery, and then got into an altercation outside.
When officers arrived on the scene, they found 1 of the men bleeding from a cut on his arm.
The victim was in his 20s. He was taken to a hospital, but doctors couldn't save him.
News photographs of the scene showed investigators retrieving a large knife from the street, but police said they believed it was the glass, and not the blade, that delivered the fatal wound.
The slain man's identity wasn't immediately released.

A new poll conducted by Quinnipiac University found overwhelming opposition to the way the arrest of Eric Garner was handled while the majority support the broken windows policy, which cracks down on low-level crimes to prevent bigger ones from occurring. Garner's death has brought the policy into the spotlight. The Staten Island man had been selling untaxed cigarettes when he was arrested. A police officer placed him in a chokehold and Garner died.
