Fight outside Fifth Quarter in Ann Arbor sends one man to hospital
A fight between an intoxicated patron and bouncers outside the Fifth Quarter in downtown Ann Arbor early Sunday sent one man to the hospital, according to police.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said the 21-year-old patron from Kentwood was told by bouncers he could not enter the bar due to his level of intoxication at about 2 a.m. Sunday.
According to a statement given to police by the bouncer, the patron insulted the bouncers and walked away before getting back in line, when he was once again denied entry.
Police said the men came to blows, with punches exchanged between both individuals. The patron reported having mace sprayed in his eyes by the bouncers and suffered two lacerations to his face — one on the left side of his forehead and another on his left upper lip, reports said.
He was taken to University of Michigan Hospital's emergency room to be treated for his injuries, Bush said.
The bouncer told police he would like to press charges against the patron. It's not known whether the patron plans to file charges against the bouncer as well.
