Two men are accused of beating a bouncer and another man inside a Port Washington tavern Saturday night.
Eric O. Brown, 23, of Mequon, and Brandon R. Jones, 24, of Milwaukee, were charged in Ozaukee County Circuit Court on Monday with one count of substantial battery and one count of disorderly conduct. If convicted, they each face up to 21 months in prison and $11,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
At 12:43 a.m. Saturday, Port Washington police officers were called to The Railroad Station, 200 S. Railroad St., on the report of a fight between several men. When officers arrived, they found several men with lacerations and one man with injuries trying to walk away, but was eventually stopped.
One of the victims said he was a bouncer at the bar and he was informed of a fight on the other side of the bar. He went with another man and found Jones taking a swing at another patron.
The bouncer and other man worked to halt the fight, but they soon became targets of violence in the incident from both Jones and Brown. Both men were pushed down the stairs outside of the tavern and got into an altercation with a man smoking a cigarette outside.
Brown is currently free on $500 bond while awaiting trial and Jones is free on $750 bond.
