Man uses guitar as weapon in Flagler Beach bar fight
After being cut off from alcohol service at a local bar, a man became irate and threatened to hit a bar patron with a guitar, according to a charging affidavit by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to Road House Bar inside the Bulow RV Resort, located at 3345 S. Old Kings Road in Flagler Beach, on Friday, July 20, in reference to a fight.
Bruce Cox, who works at Road House, was the only person not intoxicated inside the bar who was willing to complete a statement. He confirmed that Patterson became angry when refused service, that he started an altercation with the 71-year-old man and that Patterson swung a guitar at another victim.
The guitar in question had visible damage, and there was blood “all over the sidewalk in front of the door to the bar,” according to the affidavit.
Patterson was taken to the Flagler County Inmate Facility and charged with aggravated battery.
