Two other employees involved in the altercation gave statements at the police station and two others appeared to also give statements.
The primary witness, who had been involved in the altercation, had not been on duty that night, but said two female employees had told him they were uncomfortable because of comments from the group the suspects were with, one of them saying the first suspect had grabbed her inappropriately. They were told to leave but made a commotion as they slowly moved toward the door, where they refused to leave and got physical with the door crew. That principal witness said the first suspect had told him he would “put him in a body bag.”
Two of the female witnesses then moved in on the scene and the first suspect allegedly swatted at her phone knocking it from her hand. It was then he allegedly reached into his waistband and started to pull out the gun but one of the door men grabbed his arm causing him to drop it.
Another of the female witnesses, a waitress/bartender, said the first suspect had spent approximately $1,000 cash that night and the group had been “catcalling” women while drinking.
The suspects were placed under arrest and taken to the police station for processing.
The first suspect was taken to the Butler County Jail on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, aggravated menacing, having weapons while under disability and using weapons while intoxicated. The second suspect was issued citations for offenses concerning underage persons and obstructing official business and released.
