Eric House, 25, was arrested on a battery charge shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday at his girlfriend's Pacific Beach apartment on Chalcedony Street after an argument, San Diego police said.

House was booked into jail about 10:40 p.m. on one misdemeanor count of domestic battery and is being held on $10,000 bail, according to the jail's website.

He was one of three members of the so-called Bird Rock Bandits who pleaded guilty four years ago in the 2007 death of Emery Kauanui. The 24-year-old surfer died in a hospital four days after being punched in the face in a fight with the men outside his mother's La Jolla home.
