    Kind of hard to believe that a bouncer is just going to pick a random person to throw out of the bar. This guy is a loyal fruad crimminal i say

    Why would a bouncer throw out someone who’s just sitting at a bar talking to a friend?  Something doesn’t sound right about this story.  I’d like to hear the bouncer’s side.  I’ll bet it’s completely different from Mr. Ryan’s version.

  • Emotional distress?  How about emotional embarrassment at getting your arse kicked.

    Sounds like a real nice spot to hang out.

    Bouncer: one employed to restrain or eject disorderly persons.

      and not to break ankles in the process.
      let’s hold judgment until we know the facts…. the BDN is notoriously horrible at reporting the whole story when someone is arrested or when anything happens, really.

        Don’t misunderstand my comment. I just put it out there to start a conversation. Seems to have worked. Thanks for your reply!

    It took a lawyer 3 days to find him to get in on the free money.

       Note the Lawyer is from Mass.  Apparently no Maine lawyer would take it.  And where is this “free” money?  You think that because a suit is filed that someone starts writing checks?  Hardly.

        usually this happens and the lawyer try to get enough attention on it and have them settle out of court. Then he takes 60% of the settlement as a fee.

    Some patrons do not abide rude behavior and some bouncers will not tolerate it. The only negligence was in not busting this guy up more.

    Some of the bouncers in this state start way more fights than they break up so I kind of believe this guy.  I’ve seen bouncers beat the crap out of guys who could barely stand up.  Most bouncers enjoy fighting thats why they bounce.

    He forgot to sue for the money he had in his last drink that he couldnt finish drinking !

  • Well seeing that bars cannot serve people who are drunk. If he was drunk its the bars fault lol  I think the guy has a case if he was injured same way you would falling on a wet floor at Mcdonalds. i met a few bouncers that were way to forceful never tried to reason first. I touch anyone in a way they do not want to be touched is assault . I guess they law exempts bouncers Was he asked to leave first?

       You seem to be unaware that there ARE exceptions to your definition of assault.  Many of them and they include  the protection of property, other persons and termination of a trespass.

    sounds like it should be “thrown out” of court, no pun intended

    The first and only time I ever went into the Myrtle St. Tavern, I witnessed a husband & wife (or maybe girlfriend & boyfriend) armwrestling – literally – in the booth by the door. 

    Its a rough place…  Worse could’ve happened!

      I saw girl scouts arm wrestling.

    If you’ve never been there, you haven’t lived.. It’s a low-class version of the Bob Inn..

    There is a Terry Ryan that owns Shed City in Warren…same guy??

  • Millicent

    lol, Myrtle Street…not surprising. If you wanna fight in Rockland, that’s the bar to go to. Place has some pretty good history too. Best little wh*re house in Rockland, don’t know if it is now, but it’s where the sailors and fisherman would get their daily catch eons ago.

    Oh well Pal, it’s part of the bennies that comes with being at a bar… No Extra Charge!

    this guy is no fraud/criminal…and BY LAW a bouncer is never to place their hands on a patron…let alone allow several other patrons to help eject the person. any bouncer with skills knows how to defuse the situation (whatever it may be) not make it worse. so many men take these jobs for the perceived power…I would guess that legally this establishment is in plenty of trouble. and if he was drunk…well, who served him?

      “any bouncer with skills knows how to defuse the situation”……your comment reminds me of an old Swayze movie (RIP Patrick!)     Out of curiosity, which law reads a bouncer can never place his/her hands on a patron?  I was unable to find one.

        I tended bar for nearly 25 years (and even in THAT bar many years ago…) in every certification class I took (mandatory for insurance) there was a whole section on diffusing (drunken) patron situations You are not allowed by law to touch anyone…your only recourse, if words fail, are dialing 9.1.1

          …sorry didn’t answer the question! look under laws pertaining to the certification of employees serving alcohol.

  • So much for the myth of the “Rockland Renaissance”. The more things change the more they stay the same.
