Man, That Was Tense


WORCESTER —  An online video allegedly showing the beating of a patron inside the locked bathroom of a Southbridge Street strip club last year has led to the arrest of a bouncer at that club. 

Easton Byfield, 35, of Thayer Pond Drive, Oxford, was arrested Friday night and charged with assault and battery, kidnapping, unarmed robbery and filing a false crime report. Records show he was arrested at Platinum Premier, 241 Southbridge St. He is scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow in Worcester Central District Court. 

The video, which was on Youtube.com and other Internet sites yesterday, shows a man being punched several times and money allegedly being taken out of his wallet by the strip club employee. 

Police received several anonymous tips Thursday referring to the video of the Platinum Premier employee allegedly assaulting a patron, police said in a press release. The information police received included the date of the incident and the suspect’s name. Mr. Byfield was then arrested. 

After reviewing the video and obtaining information, detectives tracked down the victim, a 25-year-old Worcester resident, police said. Police were told during the investigation that the incident occurred May 25, police said. (more.)




Let me tell you, this was right out of Pulp Fiction.  I felt like that Jules Winnfield wannabe was going to yell, "What? Say what again! They speak English in What?" at any second.  But you have to love the bouncer's real motivation (as he explained), it's not that he's against selling drugs. It's that he's against people spending money on the drugs because that's less money that's going to be spent in the club. 


And language and (obvious) violence warning if you click on the video.

I've seen more "tense" fights between sixth graders. Should the bouncer be in trouble? Sure. Is this a video worth watching? Nope.

This should be disturbing enough to make you want to stay the hell out of bars, especially with big freaking black bouncers. Poor guy. I hope the black dude gets the maximum punishment.

I heard of something like that happening in the Sweetie Pies Ribeyes bathroom. They would drag patrons in there, hold them down, and wash their hands in hot water.
