32-year-old Devon Leshane Blair was charged with disorderly conduct and assault early Friday morning at The Red Door Saloon on Division St. Witnesses told police that they saw Blair acting disorderly after being told to leave and then he punched the doorman in the face after he was asked to leave the bar; an assault that Blair freely admitted to when questioned by police. Upon arrival on the scene, officers reported witnessing Blair actively attempting to fight someone, causing officers to have to get in the middle of the altercation to avoid another physical altercation from breaking out. Officers detained Blair, and he acted disorderly and verbally aggressively throughout his arrest.

John Cunningham charged in assault after being denied entry to Kung Fu Saloon
22-year-old John Cunningham and his friend, William Swanner, were denied entry to the Kung Fu Saloon late Saturday night due to their already high level of intoxication. Employee Elias Medina escorted the two away from the venue as they were refusing to leave. Medina noticed Cunningham had a rock in his hand and believed he was about to use it to assault him. He was then taken to the ground and detained until police arrived. The victim signed a private prosecution warrant for assault, and Cunningham was taken into custody.
