Man injured in bar fight out of hospital

No charges yet.

Police are waiting for a statement from one of the people involved in a recent fight before forwarding a report to a prosecutor.

North Central EMS transported a 37-year-old Bellevue man to the Bellevue Hospital emergency room after an altercation early Sunday near the Subway Lounge. Bellevue police reported the "doctor was forced to sedate" him because he reportedly was being "disruptive, speaking loudly ... being uncooperative and using vulgar language" and had him transported to the University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC).

"They reported that he had broken facial bones around his eye socket and there was a chance of him losing his sight in that eye," police said in a report.

UTMC spokeswoman Aimee Falk said the patient was discharged from the hospital Monday.

Officers Joshua Pickens and Tyi McCarley responded to the scene about 2:35 a.m. Sunday after they heard yelling coming from the area of the Subway Lounge. Upon arrival, the officers said they saw two male suspects on the ground fighting, with two other people standing nearby, and had to pull a 46-year-old Bellevue man off the 37-year-old man.

Witnesses said "a tussle broke out" in the bar in which the younger man hit another man in the back of his head and also reportedly grabbed a 38-year-old Bellevue woman's arm, which caused some bruising. The witnesses said two men dragged the attacker out of the bar after he refused to leave and once outside, he reportedly charged and punched the 46-year-old man, who in turn knocked his attacker "to the ground and continued to punch him," police said.

One of the men claimed he acted in self-defense after he reportedly was hit in the back of the head when he was outside. Police also said one of the men involved in the outside altercation accused people of kicking him in the face and punching him.

Three people told officers they wanted to press charges against the 37-year-old Bellevue man who went to the hospital, but the older Bellevue man declined to do so, police said.

Chief Dennis Brandal said Wednesday officers are waiting for a statement from one of the people before forwarding the matter to Bellevue City Prosecutor Dave Claus for the consideration of filing charges.

Paul went looking for a fight that night. That's what I heard. I read it on the internet, so it HAS to be true! You nasty quick to judge people are ruining his business, not necessarily his family doing it. Gossip destroys people and businesses

I guess Paul wears sandals when he goes out looking for a fight.

BellevueMommy

Dont look the Mira family are sticking together, they are falling apart, Poor Carl has to keep bailing these kids outa their trouble instead of making them suffer the consequences.. I hope that family grows up, takes responsability for all their actions they have done to this town terrorizing it.

Listen to yourselves! All you people posting negative comments are RUDE! Nobody really knows what went on there that night but the people who were actually there! This has NOTHING to do with what type of pizza and business it is! Think about it... Bellevue has turned into a "problem town" way before this has happened. What about all the other incidents that have happened in the past in the OTHER businesses around town?? You don't hear people bashing about those, now do we? What about the fact that the owner of the Sports Hut is cheating on his wife and is a crook?? The Nowhere Tavern has the cops there EVERY weekend and drug activity reported?? The Bierkeller Pub has a theif working for them and the owner is also cheating on his wife?? This is all just small town gossip! It has nothing to do with the pizza or the sauce! Carl Mira has helped out so many people in need and this is the way you're going to talk about his business?! It's not the business who had an altercation! SHAME ON ALL OF YOU!! Total disrespect and inconsideration! If you had found a hair in your East of Chicago Pizza, would you also be speaking this way of that business as well?? If Miller's served a bad piece of fish and gave 100's salmonella, would you speak of them this way?? Do you realize just how many people in that town have drug problems? From the way it sounds, this so called "victim" has a drug problem also. And he obviously has a problem with putting his hands on women and hurting them to the point to where they have bruises! He sounds like the coward. You all want to sit and blame the business owner for defending himself to an obnoxious drug intoxicated person, then you have some real issues to get through. Put yourself in his shoes... An obnoxious drug intoxicated person comes into your establishment and starts harassing the other customers, then hits someone with a bottle when their head was turned, he is then asked to leave. He refuses to leave and puts his hands on a woman to the point where he leaves marks. You then attempt to force him to leave and he then in his obnoxious drug intoxicated stupor hits the owner of the establishment and the owner defends himself... You people are NOT looking at the whole picture. From what I have read in 2 newspapers, Paul started it. Any owner of a bar is allowed to have anyone they want tossed out. He was asked to leave and refused! Also, the articles I read said he in fact started it. So get your facts and stories straight. Have any of you ever looked into the area public court records from the past and the present? Maybe you should. Just proves to show just what type of individual this so called "victim" is... Don't be so quick to judge.

Yup. Everything in newspapers is FACT. Really?? Kicking someone when they r down is defending themselves. Wow. But on another note, if Bellevue is a problem maybe it's the abundance of alcohol astablishments that help to provide the atmosphere for trouble.

heyuguys

You need to get your facts straight

djwebb1127

The owner of a bar has the right to remove someone. Not to bash them with a blunt object and kick them in the eyeball when they are down. I do not recall other proprietors in town performing such acts, despite the problems they've had, as you've mentioned.

heyuguys

You are so right! This town is so blind! Always quick to judge and never looking at the big picture. I feel bad for Carl with all these terrible comments. His business is not who got into the fight. Paul is and always has been a trouble maker. This is what drugs will do to a person. The ones sticking up for him feel sorry for him. Not because how badly he was injured, but how bad the drugs have made him and someone finally saying enough is enough

djwebb1127

Dominic and Joey are drug addict, cheap shot thieves, not Paul. The reason nothing came of the incident when Joey Mira was caught breaking into that home has more to do with police ineptitude than anything else. That was not the first time Joey Mira broke into that home but it was the last, thanks to Paul.

heyuguys

So, you were there? For all we know, Paul helped Joey break into that home and when they were BOTH caught, Paul snitched... Something to think about. Nobody REALLY knows anything, unless they personally witnessed it. You should let the Bellevue Police Dept know that you think they are incompetent... Should be interesting.

djwebb1127

Nope, the homeowner asked Paul to look after his house while he was working because he was worried about prior break-ins. The guys wife called Paul at home, then Paul came over and found Joey Mira fleeing from the home.

known bellevuian

....

ems246

heyuguys does have a point to what they are saying. known bellevuian , you said you didnt know paul but you seem to know so much.

ems246

you stated that you didnt know the miras or the souzas. looks to me that you deleted ALL your comments that indeed proved that you DO know them! way to try and cover up your lies. all you tell are lies. just go through and look at all "known bellevuian" responses and see they have been replaced all their previous comments with "!". LOL, nice cover up COWARD!

djwebb1127

Paul has had the same job for 17 years. His employer does random hair testing. He caught joey mira breaking into his neighbors home last year. Paul is a funny, laid back, responsible guy who looks out for good people. Joey and Dominic are known crooks who are addicted to pills and/or heroin.

ems246

hasnt the 46 year old been working at the subway and beer dock his whole life. he is always there and weve been going there for 20 plus years. why is paul associating himself with these known crooks and addicts in the same bar

bellboy

Gee let me think milfof3. Is that 3 baby daddys of 3 different men? Wouldn't doubt it. How you like smack talking on you slutty? You got a problem with the family say it to their face that way they know who your cowardly people are. Rob you when your drunk? Please.very doubtful. Keep to theirself unless messed with? YES. Bottom line

djwebb1127

They rob homes and sucker punch people, which is common knowledge to many including police. You are foolish for denying that. Paul actually caught one of them robbing his neighbor's home, which is why they refer to him as a snitch.

heyuguys

Were you there when Paul caught this guy? They are referring to Paul as a snitch... Paul turned in the guy Paul gets his pills from so Paul wouldn't get charged. That's not a snitch, that's a coward

djwebb1127

I know the homeowner. A guy who was working many overtime hours and who was concerned while his wife was home alone. While he was at work, a break in occurred, his wife called Paul. It's a simple, true story.

rtklpn

More proof it's drug related! Are you people blind? It was in this article! "Bellevue police reported the "doctor was forced to sedate" him because he reportedly was being "disruptive, speaking loudly ... being uncooperative and using vulgar language" and had him transported to the University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC)."

djwebb1127

Perhaps Paul was upset because the owners of the establishment beat him with objects in the face to the point he had to be transported by life flight, and the cops incorrectly put him in cuffs when they arrived.

heyuguys

Sounds like they put him in cuffs because he was high on drugs and alcohol and turned into a crazed maniac. Mixing the two will do it to you. Especially narcotic pills.

djwebb1127

Although he didn't test positive for "narcotic pills" at the hospitals afterwords.

Concerned For A...

I would be loud and disruptive after getting my face smashed in by someone then being put in hand cuffs as well. That don't mean he is on drugs of any kind! Listen to yourself. You sound completely rediculous! They do random hair strand drug testing at Pauls job, which he has been at for 17 years! Paul is the victim here, cut and dried. They were trying to kick him out of the bar...fine. But to bash his eye socket in with a blunt object? VERY unprofessional and uncalled for. It's great for buisness..Hey everyone, come enjoy some drinks at the subway lounge and get your skull kicked in, it's a great time! As I said to one of the other posters defending them, Bellevue is a small town. They are already known just simply from name alone. So it's kinda hard for someone with the last name Mira to hide anything, because Carl is a huge part of our community for years. I generally feel bad for Carl that he has to be put through this. But what they did to Paul was violent and un called for. They could have killed him. He has a little girl at home, a wife, had the same job for years, gets random drug testing at work. That can be proven just by pulling his company record. So quit trying to shift blame where blame doesn't lie! It's far to late for you to defend these boys behavior, word gets around, and word is to not take your eyes off them for a second when you are in the same establishment. It's fine to stick up for your family and band together. It is NOT ok to bash someones skull in because you don't want them in your establishment! Restrain an out of control person while waiting for police, maybe. Decide to beat them with a blunt object and kick them in the face, not at all.You can't just be a bar owner, you have to manage your bar. If it is rumored their is unsavorable activity going on, take care of it. Family or not that is your buisness, and if those family members are bring about trouble in your establishment, they should be barred just like the next person would be! They are lucky they aren't being charged with attempted murder! The facts are the facts. No room for justification here. Aggrivated Assult because a weapon was used!

cccdj.

Boone is sticking up for victim.bar owner should throw u out or call cops if there is a problem in bar not gang up on him and beat him till he needs to be tooken away by ambulance that's assault.the subway and beerdock are long known to be owned by same people. And they have leave there worthless pillhead family run it and this is what u get. If u stick up for them and love there pizza so much go down and and enjoy it by yourself cause I for one won't spend a penny at either place.

heyuguys

Didn't Paul have a few friends with him? Where were they when this beating was going on? Were his friends also beating him up? A real friend won't stand by and watch a buddy get beat up. Everyone keeps saying pill head family. Who are these pill heads? I personally love their pizza

milf of 3

Well noone was bashing carl everyone feels sorry for him and now thanks for airing the rest of bellevues dirty laundry didn't know all that but what is to say is that yes u have the right to kick someone out but wht is wrong with this situation is tht whn u have to hurt someone that bad then cops should have been called before hand,not take matters in ur own hands its jst another way for u to cover up there mistake.

heyuguys

Yeah, thanks for airing the dirty laundry.
