L.I. man arrested after alleged scrap at downtown bar
A Garden City, N.Y,. man was arrested early Sunday morning after an alleged altercation with employees at a downtown social club.
Police responded to Darien Social Club on Center Street at 1:51 a.m., Sunday morning about an unruly patron haranguing patrons, Cappelli said.
Employees asked Dunn and the patrons to leave the bar, Cappelli said.
A short time later, Dunn allegedly reentered the bar, yelled at two employees for his car keys and shoved one of them, Cappelli said. The employee brought Dunn to the ground in an attempt to control him before Dunn ran out of the bar, Cappelli said.
Police officers found Dunn nearby and he became belligerent when they asked for identification, Cappelli said. The employees of the bar said they did not want to press charges, Cappelli said.
An officer then pushed Dunn away from him twice when Dunn stepped toward him threatening to fight the officer, Cappelli said. Dunn began to run, and wrestled on the ground with an officer who caught up to him, Cappelli said.
Dunn sustained abrasions and two lacerations to his right forearm, and a small cut on his right elbow, Cappelli said. Dunn told police he might have gotten the cuts fighting bar patrons outside Darien Social Club, Cappelli said.
Dunn was released on $500 bond, and is to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford on Friday, July 10, according to Cappelli.
