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.

It's difficult to imagine anything stated on here will minimize the fact that Paul was assaulted with weapons while lying on the ground after being struck by a weapon.

VeniVidiVici

How about the fact that witnesses who were there said that Paul started the fight? Or is that too difficult to imagine?

BellevueMommy

These so called witnesses all have the last name of mira.... the same lastname of the people who did this... of course they are gona say he started it. What family wouldnt stick together. The cops gave them plenty of time to collaborate on their story before getting statements.

heyuguys

What weapon was he struck with? I heard he hit someone with a beer bottle, grabbed a girl and assulted the owner while the owner was showing him to the door.

djwebb1127

He was struck with the weapon which broke multiple bones in his face, damaged his eyeball and swelled the back of his head.

I would enjoy you finding where I've threatened Paul Souza in any way on this message board and then copy and paste it.

"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.

luvblues2

Point out the "threat" part.

djwebb1127

Where you said 'shut up before you make it worse for your bud'.

Paul has helped people who have been robbed by the Bellevue pill head problem. He has helped people get their stolen items back and has stopped junkies from breaking into homes. And now he's having surgery because of injuries he sustained while being beaten with objuects by one of the pill junkies he caught during a robbery. Recover fast Paul, Bellevue needs you out there. You are a fine citizen.

heyuguys

Paul has also helped rob people in this town and been busted for pills. And by returning the stolen items and snitching out other pill heads, he has become a fine citizen... You are all blind

djwebb1127

So, you wish to take what's true of Joey and Dominic and apply it to Paul as if it's true of him. Quite lame, easy to see through and not at all effective. The only one potentially blinded here is Paul, after being struck multiple times in the eye with a blunt object.

cccdj.

It don't matter the pillheads will just rat out one of there buddies and won't even go to jail.the Bellevue police are a joke they know these kid and never do anything to them.as long as there family protects these thugs they will be out breaking in to places and stealing to support there habits. So lock your doors Bellevue .

just a fyi Paul Suosa is on his way to Toledo Hospital to have a plate inserted in his face to put his eye back in place pray it works and he doesn't lose his eye sight for going to have a drink..by the way he was struck in the back of head with a cue ball while trying to use the restroom beaten in face with it while being kicked in the face

luvblues2

You watched this happen, sunlover2013?

VeniVidiVici

The witnesses who were ACTUALLY THERE said that paul started it, I know that does not fit your narrative, but don't let FACTS get in the way of a good story!

BellevueMommy

Even if he did start it, why did it take all of them against him? Why did they not call the cops instead of beat him down and let the cops handle it? Why is he the only one injured, life flighted and plastic surgery? Wether he started it or not, the only damage is to his head... reguardless, it still does not make it right. The paper also says that when they got there the owner was outside ontop of him beating him.. he was already outside of the bar.. why not just shut the door and leave it at that...

djwebb1127

That's Paul, out looking for a fight with his flip-flops on.

heyuguys

He was struck in the back of head with a cue ball while trying to use the restroom beaten in face with it while being kicked in the face? All at the same time? Were these people beating his @ss magicians?

djwebb1127

How else do you explain five broken bones in his face, a nearly destroyed eyeball, bruises and swelling on the back of his head and stitches on his elbow?

ems246

wow. so did he steal the cue ball and piss on the property and thats why he was in a fight? the witness said he was kicked out out the bar. how is all of this possible

luvblues2

As I stated earlier, I don't have a dog in this fight and I was not there. For those of you who were not there backing one side or the other, will eventually diminish the case and nothing will happen.

It was a drunken fight in a bar. That never happens. It's some new thing that just started this past month.

djwebb1127

It certainly sounds as if you're biased although your comment states otherwise.

luvblues2

You can hear sound from my type written words? Cool..!

But no, I am just pointing out facts that most with emotionalized posts are missing.

Where are the witnesses? Without them there is nothing but a bar brawl.
"I heard" and "FYI, it's fact, but I wasn't there" doesn't make it so.

djwebb1127

And I was pointing out that it's irrevelant if proper evidence is revealed on this forum, as you're not a juror or judge on the case and it would perhaps be foolish to publish known pertinant information here, thus revealing too much information to the side of evil, which fosters pill head junkie, spoiled cheap shot artists who would rather rob than work.

luvblues2

I have not been shown such evidence, counselor.

djwebb1127

I haven't been shown evidence that you are the grand jury, so who cares.

So the initial reports of the "victim" being in a coma were FALSE. He was sedated because his drunk ass was still running his suck. The greatest predictor of future behavior is past behavior, and the "victim" has run his mouth and started many fights in the past. This time, drunky's mouth wrote a check his ass couldn't handle.

djwebb1127

And probably a matter of time until the current generation does to Carl's business what Casey McClain did to his family business.
