As we bring in 2018, so does the violence at local bars and a few accidents.
Around 12:30 am, police were responding to two different fights at local bars.
The first one was at Park Lanes, a suspect was beating up the bouncer then fled northbound. White male around 22 years old wearing a grey hoodie.
Shortly after that fight, there was a fight at Mustang Bar. Details are minimal on this fight at the time of writing this.
