Update from a source: A female customer was asked to leave by the bouncer, because she was allegedly being disorderly. The bouncer was attempting to escort her out. She was refusing to leave and hit the bouncer a couple of times. The bouncer then pushed her away. Several men saw the incident and thought the bouncer was hitting the woman and stepped in to intervene and began to beat on the bouncer. Then several others began to fight, some to protect the bouncer, and others to hurt the bouncer. No weapons were involved. One person was transported to the E.R. sounds like non life threatening injuries. RPD has yet to confirm this.
Note: This was an active scene when I filmed this. So I was only able to film from one location. I was filming the police, and Tavern On Clark was in the background of me filming the police at the scene. Some people have chose not read this article and just watch the video and automatically assumed Tavern On Clark was involved. (since they have chose not to read and only watch the video) since it was in the background in the video of me filming the police at this scene. Tavern on Clark was NOT involved. It was an active scene and I was limited on where I could film from, and it just happened to be in the background as I filmed the police.
