HOWLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Police responded to a fight at a local Texas Roadhouse Wednesday night in which one woman was knocked unconscious.
Police were called to the 2200 block of Niles Cortland Road just after 8:30 p.m. after they heard about a large fight happening inside of the restaurant.
According to a police report, when officers got there, they noticed a shirtless man bleeding from his mouth.
Witnesses told police that the fight started after a man in the restaurant used profanity toward a 13-year-old girl, reports said. A woman said the man was upset that the 13-year-old had run into his daughter, though the woman said she did not observe any contact between the two.
The woman said she confronted the man and he became aggressive toward her, at which time her son began to defend her.
This turned into a physical fight involving multiple people, and the woman was hit. She told police that she was unsure of who hit her and said she lost consciousness.
The man reportedly involved in the incident told police that he was hit from behind by an unknown man. Reports say he believed that he was being hit at every angle and that he was returning closed fists while unsure of who he was hitting.
Police were unable to determine at the time who started the physical fight. Both parties decided to not press charges, according to the report.
