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.

Apparently the bar owner did attempt to throw him out before the cops were to be called, according to witnesses who were there. What else was he to do? Let this obnoxious drug intoxicated person put his hands on a woman to the point where he leaves marks and when kicked out of the bar, hit the owner and the owner not defend himself? That is what everyone is not getting. The owner could be in the so called "victims" shoes if he had not defended himself. As for "pillhead family", I think not. The Mira family has always been well respected and willing to give to the needy and area programs. Carl Mira even ran for mayor a few years back. It is not fair to judge and bash a family for what other offspring may have done in their pasts. As for airing the towns dirty laundry... I'm sorry, but those were prime examples. Just because you don't read it in the paper of the things that are going on with the other business's around town, does not mean they are better than the Carl Mira's. And everyone who is stating that they do not wish to give Carl any business, so be it. There are other patrons out there that respect their elder establishments and don't pass judgment on a man who has done so much and given so much to his town and community! Keep your pennies to yourself cccdj.

Hey, wasn't Carl a few ballots from winning mayor? That was a close election. I'm still giving my business. I'm ordering a pizza tonight! I'm not letting small town gossip ruin anything for me!

Carl was fighting for the position of mayor about the same time Joey and Dominic jumped a 14 year old kid, knocking his teeth out.

cccdj.... Keep your drama to yourself. Go use it on facebook! Maybe bellboy is exhausted from hearing these horrible comments about a helpless business owner. Give Carl Mira a break, quit bashing!

cccdj.

Carl has allows for his oof springs and grandkids to get out of hand and then bails them out of there troubles.I am sorry to say he is responsible for the bullcrap that he allows to go on at his business. As for the beerdock its been going down for years and will be lucky to make it thru the year.subway has had one leg in grave for years.don't worry the grandkids will finish both of them off.

rtklpn

You are an ignorant piece of work! How dare you blame an innocent elderly man for something he has NOTHING TO DO WITH!! Shame on you!! I want to sit here and bash you, but I will instead pray for you to find peace in your own life since you have NO sympathy for your elders!

heyuguys

Wow! Who's to say he "lets" this go on. Way to judge all his grand kids with your stereotype.

BellevueMommy

imagine being kicked in the head so hard and beaten in the face so much then you have ems trying to restrain you after all that happening.. yes you will be needed sedated or angry cuz you have no idea whats going on after what just happen to you. anyone would be angry and outraged after having that happen to them...and also, no one is bashing carl, if anything people are feeling bad for him cuz his family is out terrorizing the town and ruining the mira name. Carl has always been a good guy in the community.

heyuguys

I feel bad for Carl. These people are destroying him with the town gossip. Does anyone really know what happened that night?

djwebb1127

Paul Souza was struck with at least one blunt object on the back and front of his head.

ems246

you keep repeating yourself about a blunt object being used. if paul had friends with him why were these friends not helping him. sounds terrible

cccdj.

Ha ha ha ha ha

milf of 3

Yes carl is a good guy an as for cccdj comments,rtklpn, he must have hit a nerve the truth speeks,that's what I'm guesssin an knowing how these guys work they get what's coming

luvblues2

Does "mother I'd like to f**k of 3" mean that you have 3 kids that want to have sex with you, or that you know 3 guys that want to have sex with you because you have a baby?

cccdj.

I feel sorry for the elderly. But he keeps bailing out his grandkids so they can go out and do more bad stuff to people. He is partial to blame.its not a matter if he's old its just right from wrong.maybe when he bails them out of this then they will be back at there same old tricks and I pray for u they don't steal from u rtklpn.or maybe they will assault u .

luvblues2

I still have not heard one word from any witnesses on Paul's side. All conjecture and hearsay.

djwebb1127

Is luvblues2 on some pretend jury? Have there been words on here from witnesses on the other side? I haven't heard one word that way either. Here's food for thought - Paul actually did start the fight a year ago when he busted one of those guys breaking into his neighbor's home.

heyuguys

Then why didn't Paul take care of it a year ago? Sounds to me like he provoked this fight! I don't feel sorry for him. He is a pill head and a thief along with many others in this town!

djwebb1127

Paul did the best he could under the law. He called the police on the burglar. What the police did was out of his control. Paul works hard for his money and doesn't need to steal.

luvblues2

"Have there been words on here from witnesses on the other side? I haven't heard one word that way either."

Police reports to the paper. Read above.

So he starts a fight a year ago and walks into their bar to start it again? I'm certain that defense will work out in his favor come court time.

You need to shut up before you make it worse for your bud.

mitchhegedusic

Everyone's talking about how bad these people are and the bars, if they are so bad, stay away from them and find a different bar! It's not rocket science people!

Everyone is fam...

Some of you really need to quit typing with your elbows. I can understand typos or autocorrect mistakes, but my dog could type some of these comments up more intelligently. It's really sad and scary that our educational system has failed this miserably.

VeniVidiVici

Thank You! I wanted to say the same thing but figured it was a lost cause. lrn 2 type n engrish plz.

djwebb1127

Luvblues2, on a pretend jury who supposes a newspaper comment board will be admitted as evidence, evidently living in a pretend world where pill heads should be allowed to kick and punch people in the face while they're on the ground.
Interesting that luvblues2 has now threatened Paul Souza on this message board. What are you going to do, throw another pipe bomb at his house? I guess we should just allow crack-head pill junkies to break into homes, let them do what they please.
I doubt Paul was looking to start a fight, walking around in his sandals. He didn't expect to get struck in the back of the head by a blunt object.

luvblues2

Social media can be tracked back to the poster and is used as evidence in courts everyday. This is 2013, not the year you were born.
