A Florida Man: Bouncer KO's patron



However, when one of the men returned to the scene to explain to police what had taken place, he was arrested on charges of assault on an officer and disorderly conduct.

That video is not available at this time, if there is even one, but there is no question the two bouncers should have been arrested as well.

In fact, there is a strong chance that Alexander Coelho, the man who was punched and kicked in the head by one of the bouncers, did not do anything remotely close to what police blame him for, going down as another example of why we should never depend on the police for anything.

I also wouldn’t be surprised if the most aggressive bouncer is applying to become a cop because he obviously has what it takes.

Unless a bullied bar patron puts a bullet in him first.

The video was posted on Instagram and the story the story was picked up by the Broward New Times. The quote is from Victoria Silva and not Mary Ann Crespo as was noted in the New Times story (Silva contacted me to set the record straight):

According to sources, when the alleged victim, Alexander Coelho, returned to the scene to try to explain to the cops how he had been treated by the Dirty Blondes security guards, Coelho was arrested on two charges, battery on an officer and disorderly conduct. Friends of Coelho say he and another victim in the incident are “both nice and not the type of kids to start problems with bouncers.”

When contacted regarding the incident, Dirty Blondes management declined comment.

Here is the number Fort Lauderdale police list on their website to “report a crime:” (954) 828-5700. Maybe we can urge them to arrests the bouncers who clearly committed battery on the patrons.

And here is the Facebook page to Dirty Blondes, the bar where this took place.

UPDATE: After getting slammed with negative comments on its Facebook page, Dirty Blonde’s began deleting the comments before offering the following statement:

We deeply regret the matter, which occurred at Dirty Blondes at approximately 7:00pm on Sunday, July 28.

This is by all accounts was an isolated incident, resulting when four patrons, two males and two females, were repeatedly asked to leave the bar.

While we do not condone the actions displayed in the 15-second video circulating, no further statements on what led up to, during or after the incident ensued will be issued until we review the matter internally with all parties involved.

The two men involved in the matter were subsequently arrested, one for pushing an officer after the incident, the other for returning to the property an hour later. At this time, no charges were made against any members of the staff, and management has pledged to cooperate with authorities should an investigation take place.

Management would however like to offer a sincere apology to patrons and those who bore witness to the unfortunate event while enjoying their Sunday afternoon.

UPDATE II: PINAC reader Seth pointed out another video, posted below, from 2010 where a Dirty Blonde’s security punched a patron, but this one seems like it was an all-out fight, unlike the most recent one.

Wow.Felony aggravated battery sounds like a serious charge. Maybe that will keep him from head-stomping...

ALEXANDER COELHO: CUSTOMER BEATEN BY BOUNCERS AT A FORT LAUDERDALE BAR ARRESTED FOR BATTERY AND DISORDERLY CONDUCT, REPORT SAYS — 8/06/2013   The alcohol must flow. At Dirty Blondes Sports Bar in Fort Lauderdale, FL, patron Alexander Coelho, 29, and a friend, David Parker, 28, got into a heated argument with a bartender. The barflies claimed that their bartender was mixing their drinks with little alcohol. Naturally, the bouncers stepped in and escorted them from the bar. Then reportedly, a street brawl broke out between the two bouncers, Arnald Thomas-Darrah, 30, and Jovan Ralfhel Dean, 35, and the thrown out barflies. The bouncers laid the smack down on Coelho and Parker, and Dean told the men to "have a good day" as they scampered to safety. Coelho and Parker were arrested afterwards by cops who say the two assaulted them. Coelho, who had his head stomped, was taken to the hospital for eight stiches above his eyes. He allegedly pushed an officer responding to the scene. Coelho faces battery and disorderly conduct ...

A co-worker of mine's boyfriend got a fat settlement from the Hyatt. He was there at the night club after a melee he wasn't involved in, he got cuffed by a bouncer, and another one cracked him in the head with a flashlight. He got KO'd and it broke his orbital... It fucked him up pretty good and he's a pilot for the marines so it hampered his ability to do his job. The case got settled a couple weeks back and I don't know the final total he got, but I do know that the last settlement offer he turned down was 500k.

Ummm no, I've learned recently that banging a guys head into concrete is schoolyard stuff and at most will give him some slight scratches

I know you aren't talking to me, but what you said is true about not needing to wait for someone to swing. In this context, I don't think there was enough to justify what they did though.

you dont need to let someone swing on you before you are allowed to use force in self defense, or in defense of others on them. as long as its reasonably believed they are about to commit violence, you are allowed to use force to prevent that violence. especially in florida probably. and yes guy who replied to me, i am familiar with what they train you for in the security field. one reason many places emphasize the hands off approach is to stay completely clear of any lawsuits.

As an attorney, I agree with almost everything Fake Pie has said. I say almost because I didn't read all of it.

I made one statement pointing out you conflating tort and criminal law btw (which you did), so not sure why you think I made all these arguments about it. Our main issue continues to be what the standard is for a civil (tort) case. And I've said all along that they aren't easy cases to win, but for other reasons than a pattern is required--it is because the bouncers always claim self defense and the victims are usually drunk while the bouncers are sober, lending credence to those claims. In this case, there is a video, so that will be tough.
