Barroom Drama

A fight broke out at the Ridgewood Tap around 11:15 p.m., according to police reports.  Police say a man walked into the bar with an acquaintance looking to fight someone. The man allegedly became belligerent after a patron asked him to leave, reports say. The man was escorted outside, where he attempted to attack his escort, according to the report. Luckily, his escort parried the attack and forced the man to the ground to restrain him, police say. He was eventually transported to the Homewood police station and released without charges, although it was made clear he’s not welcome at “The Ridge” anymore, reports say.
