Butler County student charged for allegedly hitting bar employee, threatening to sue police

Officers on foot near Brick Street at 10:25 p.m. March 3 heard a disturbance resulting from a student struggling with bar staff trying to make him leave, according to a police report.

He was identified as Jack Hollocher and placed in handcuffs.

The officers were told he had been fighting other patrons on the dance floor and was being removed, wrapped his hands around a post so that he had to be pried off and then he punched one of the employees on the side of the head. He was described as having glassy eyes and with a strong odor of alcoholic beverages on his breath.

He was found to have a Missouri driver’s license showing him to be under 21 as well as his older brother’s license.

At the police department, Hollocher said he was going to sue the officers and did not have to go to the court date he was being assigned. It was decided he would be taken to the Butler County Jail to ensure he would be brought before the courts.

He said he had his brother’s license because he had visited and left it behind. He said he needed the license back to return it when he visits his brother for his birthday, but it was noted in the report that birthday is in August.

Hollocher began saying he could walk out the door if he wanted and could not be stopped and began taunting the officers, calling them stupid and saying they would be homeless after he sues them. He claimed his parents had been killed in the Tennessee tornadoes that day and at the jail said his father was a lawyer and would sue them. 

He was charged with assault, criminal trespass and offenses concerning underage persons. The brother’s license and bar video were placed into property.
