Poker argument ends with men hitting each other with bottles
One man was sent to the hospital Friday morning after being struck on the head with a bottle following an argument that began over a poker game.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said police were notified of the fight at 2:26 a.m. Friday, which took place in the alley behind The Heidelberg, 215 N. Main St. The men were arguing during a poker game inside the bar and the 37-year-old Ann Arbor man who went to the hospital told police they went outside “to settle it like men.”
The verbal argument escalated until a 29-year-old Ann Arbor man struck the 37-year-old over the head with a bottle, causing a laceration to the man’s head. During the ensuing fight, the 37-year-old man also struck the 29-year-old man with a bottle, causing facial injuries, Bush said.
Both men were instigators in the incident and no prosecution is desired.
