Family members are mourning the death of a 27-year-old Corona del Mar man who was taken off life support Friday after an assault outside a nightclub early Thanksgiving morning.
The assault on Clinton Joseph ‘C.J.’ Hubbard happened around 1:40 a.m. Thursday. Hubbard was leaving Code Restaurant/Lounge at 4221 Striker Way and was confronted by a man in the parking lot, witnesses told police.
That man punched Hubbard in the face.
The punch resulted in a burst artery in the brain, said the victim’s father, also named Clint Hubbard.
Hubbard was rushed to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, where he was declared brain dead, his father said.

OCCCWS has obtained a formal statement by Deputy Chief Craig Hunter, Candidate for OC Sheriff in the 2010 elections, regarding his intentions toward a CCW policy in Orange County, should he be elected.
After extensive communications and research on the available candidates for Sheriff of Orange County, OCCCWS is proud to announce our support and endorsement for Craig Hunter, Anaheim Deputy Chief of Police, for Sheriff of Orange County in the 2010 election.
Please join us in offering your support and congratulations to Chief Hunter, as we begin the march towards victory in November, 2010!
There is little to salvage from last week’s mass murder at Fort Hood, Texas, but there are some stark realizations this heartbreaking horror exposes. One is the wishful but mistaken notion that such incidents can be prevented by laws prohibiting or strictly restricting access to firearms. The Second Amendment not with standing, U.S. military bases prohibit unauthorized personnel from carrying firearms on base. Access to military weapons is carefully restricted and weapons are secured in armories.
Never the less, even within the well regulated conditions of a military base, a man was able to acquire and conceal two powerful personal handguns which he used to murder 13 people and wound dozens of others.
The argument that a prohibition against firearms will eliminate the possession of firearms by anyone is clearly refuted by the ample empirical evidence that prohibition simply does not succeed in its intended objective when the subject of the prohibition is something that enough of the population wants. No matter how draconian the restrictions or dire the legal consequences prohibition is defeated by desire.
OCCCWS is proud to announce our endorsement of incumbent Tony Rackauckas for District Attorney. Mr. Rackauckas has a great track record of protecting and supporting second amendment and CCW rights within Orange County, and it is for these reasons we offer our endorsement of him in the 2010 election.
Please join us in keeping second amendment and CCW rights safe for the citizens of Orange County by supporting Tony Rackauckas!
Soon OCCCWS will be going to court to fight just one example of the Sheriff’s egregious behavior. Our attorney is operating on a contingency basis, but OCCCWS needs to cover fees and other expenses. So donations to OCCCWS, which has been the lead organization highlighting Sheriff Hutchens’ regrettable actions, would appreciate donations to help offset these expenditures. Please click here to donate!
Also, OCCCWS anticipates increased expenditures soon, as the number of candidates running against the Sheriff increases. Anything you give will help our efforts to send Sheriff Hutchens into her second retirement before she can secure a pension from the Citizens of Orange County in addition to the one she already has from LA County.
Thank you in advance for your help!
