Police responded at 12:56 a.m. to a report of a fight in progress at the Jambalaya/Bourbon Street bar at Pheasant Run Resort, 4051 E. Main St. Officers arrived to find one officer had separated most of the individuals involved, although a heated argument was continuing and one man was bleeding from the mouth, although he declined medical assistance. One of the men told police he had left the bar but returned to confront another man after his mother-in-law told him the individual had punched her in the face. Police said all the individuals involved in the altercation were intoxicated, that they did not know each other prior to the incident. The man accused of punching the woman denied having done so. The bar staff could not tell police who started the fight, and no one involved wished to pursue charges.
