A Bouncer at The DL was Assaulted by Ejected Patron
Down at The DL early Saturday morning, a bouncer guarding the door was assaulted by a patron, police said.
The security guard escorted a drunk man from the premises (for reasons unknown) shortly after 1am and told him not to come back. This didn’t sit well, and the perp, described as a white man wearing a brown jacket and blue jeans, reportedly struck the bouncer, who then fell and injured his ankle, according to police.
Officers responded and charged the bar-goer with misdemeanor third-degree assault.
The incident shines more light on a nightclub (and owner) constantly at odds with the Lower East Side community, and with notoriety to boot. In the last year, there have been two brawls at its doorstep; there was also a multi-agency MARCH sting back in May that resulted in 36 violations.
