Drunk Woman Causes Epic Scene at SLP Bar

Prospective patron became angry after being denied admittance at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill.

This might be one for the record books.

On Dec. 27, a 5-foot, 3-inch, 130-pound woman decided to take on a 6-foot, 2-inch, 250-pound bouncer at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill, according to a report filed by officers with the St. Louis Park Police Department.

Around 11 p.m., the woman cruised up to the bar door and attempted to get in. According to police, the bouncer on duty at the door denied her admittance, as she was “very drunk.” This did not sit well with the 24-year old Zumbrota, MN, resident. According to the 28-year old bouncer, she punched him in the chest multiple times and attempted to kick him in the groin.

Police, who were already on the scene for an unrelated call, heard the commotion and came over. At this point, a second, Toby Keith’s employee was attempting to “control” the woman, who was screaming and “actively resisting,” police said. A crowd, the police report said, was “alarmed” and was backing away from the woman.

According to the report, the woman screamed obscenities at officers when they asked her what the problem was. As police tried to question her, the report said, they discovered she could “barely communicate and could not format full sentences.”

The woman blew a .257 on a police Breathalyzer, was transported to Methodist Hospital for detox, and was cited for disorderly conduct.

Why is this even a story? Because it was a petite woman? Men do this kind of sh@# every day, at every bar, in every town...

@Mike. I assume your situation involved "demonstrable harm" where prosecutors can show evidence of your assault. Also, it depends on the suspect's past history of assaults with convictions which can turn a simple misdemeanor assault into a gross misdemeanor or felony. Otherwise, in this case, bouncers probably didn't pursue charges and she was not arrested for it.

Missy, ummmm, no. I was a bouncer and trust me, the amount of crap I had to deal with from both genders was astounding. "Most" of the time, we don't want the police involved because it's a mark against the bar, so police aren't called unless somethings totally out of control. One of the more memorable times for me was when a drunk threw a pool ball at me, missing my head by about 2". Before I could get at him, the regulars had him down and beat the tar out of the guy. He got tossed out the door where he stumbled down the sidewalk and passed out laying in the gutter. As luck would have it, a squad had just turned up the street and saw the guy. They got out, one got me outside and asked "is this yours?" A few of the regulars came out and started telling the cops what had happened. The guy was tossed in the back of the squad never to be seen again. No charges filed by me or the bar owner. I can almost guarantee had the police not been at Toby Keith's to begin with, that "petite woman" would've been shuffled down the street, even after assaulting the bouncer.

They took witness satements and the individual didn't deny them.

It is a story like any other drunk assaulting anyone. Fortunaltely she didn't get to drive away and kill someone. She put herself and the community at risk by getting stupid drunk..
