According to the victims, a verbal argument between Jared and people inside the bar had occurred and become physical. The assistant manager of the bar escorted Jared outside and the two became involved in their own verbal argument.
It became physical between the assistant manager and Jared when Jared kept trying to go back into the bar, according to police.
The second victim, the general manager at the Stereotype bar, was working at another establishment when he received a phone call about a disturbance involving Jared at the Stereotype bar. The general manager arrived to see Jared and the assistant manager involved in a physical altercation.
The general manager separated the two and the assistant manager reentered the bar. Jared attempted to enter the bar again and put his hands on a doorman, according to police. The general manager pulled Jared off of the doorman and Jared fell to the ground.
