Western Wrangle

At 10:53 a.m. Tuesday, a male filed a report that he had been assaulted at Brick Street bar, 36 E High St., on Saturday night. The male informed an officer that he had been dancing on the dance floor with an unknown female when another male approached him and reportedly said "what the f*** bro." The victim was then surrounded by three more males who began punching him repeatedly. The male believes that the other males assaulted him because the female was one of their girlfriends. The males were wearing western themed clothing, and continued punching the male until a bouncer broke up the fight and brought the male outside to give him ice. The male went to McCullough-Hyde Hospital to have his injuries inspected and was found to have a broken eye socket. The investigation is still ongoing.

The male informed an officer that he had been walking by himself when he struck up a conversation with two males who were walking the same way. The male then invited the two males into his friend's house and the next thing he remembers was waking up on the floor of the house. The male believed the two males had choked him out and then proceeded to burglarize the house. The investigation is ongoing.

Female transported to hospital for intoxication

At 2:24 a.m. Wednesday, an officer was flagged down by a male in front of the Evan's Scholars house, 216 E. Church St. and the male informed the officer that there was a passed out female on the front lawn. The officer tried to wake the female and ask her questions but she could not be awoken and mumbled unintelligible words. The officer noticed an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the female and that she was wearing an over 21 wristband. The female began dry heaving and the officer called the Life Squad. The officer located a fictitious over 21 Connecticut driver's license and a real under 21 Ohio driver's license in the female's purse that had the same name and photo on them. The Life Squad arrived and transported the female to McCullough-Hyde, when asked if she was aware why she was in the hospital, the female replied "because I'm drunk." She was charged with Sales to Underage Persons, Intoxication and Certain Acts Prohibited.
