Downtown CdA Bar Report (June 1-8)

A lot of fights and public urination in this week's Downtown Coeur d'Alene Bar Report. But the Gold Star for the best incident goes to an angry young man who celebrated his 21st birthday this week by partying most of the evening. Seems he punctuated the celebration sometime late Tuesday or early Wednesday by punching an Iron Horse worker in the nose. Twice. Later in the evening, according to the Bar Report, the victim of the first punch saw his assailant outside and congratulated him on his 21st birthday. You know, let bygones be bygones. The newly minted 21YO rewarded the Iron Horse worker by punching him in the nose again at about 1:20 a.m. Wednesday. The suspect then left in a vehicle and couldn't be located by Coeur d'Alene police. You can read the complete Downtown Coeur d'Alene Bar Report here.
