A fight among bar patrons early Sunday morning led to a man being pushed through the front window of Main Street Wellington’s office.
The altercation spilled out of Fort’s Old Town Tavern on West Herrick Avenue around 2 a.m.
As the man who did the pushing attempted to leave the bar, he was yelled at and coaxed back out of his car, said Main Street Wellington director Jenny Arntz.
“The person who was actually pushed through the window took off before the police arrived,” she said. “The gentleman who did the pushing said he doesn’t know who he is either. According to staff next door, there was a group of guys they didn’t recognize with the man who was pushed who did most of the antagonizing.”
Arntz said the pusher has offered to help with the cost of replacing the window, which insurance adjustments place around $2,500 when factoring in new lettering work on the glass.
“It’s large chunks of glass and the lettering is not easy to put on,” she said. “The man came in and apologized which I thought was very responsible.”
A police report for the incident was not made available. It’s unclear how much of a factor alcohol played in the scuffle.
“If they were out late at night at a bar, chances are alcohol was involved, but I think it was more of an ego thing,” said Arntz. “Late at night people just don’t know when to quit.”
No blood was found among the broken glass during clean-up efforts handled by the village.
