MOLINE, Ill. -- Arrest warrants were issued for eight people after a bar fight that included pool cues, a baseball bat, billiard balls and bar stools used as weapons.
“Upon arrival officers found the pub littered with injured patrons,” said a statement from Moline Police Department Detective Scott Williams. Most of the people involved in the fight were gone, but a security camera captured video footage of the incident.
“Camera footage shows multiple individuals in a bar brawl that included patrons hit with pool cues, an aluminum baseball bat, and billiard balls, bar stools, glass beer mugs, bare knuckles and feet,” Williams said.
Injuries included cuts that required stitches, a damaged eye socket, tendon damage, “and all the bruising and scrapes that come from a bar fight,” Williams said.
Eight people faced felony charges of aggravated battery and mob action in connection with the brawl, and arrest warrants were issued for those people, Williams said. Their bonds were set at various amounts between $30,000 and $75,000. Some of the eight people had not yet been served with the warrants, Williams said.
