According to the police incident report, an officer stopped by the Station 4 bar in Lowertown sometime after 1 a.m. He noticed two women arguing with the bartenders and bar staff. One of the workers asked the police officer to remove the two women from the bar.
Applebaum said one of the women was Clark’s fiancee. According to the lawsuit, Clark was escorting his fiancee out of the bar when a police officer pushed him. Clark again tried to leave, but the officer and a few backup officers came after him. Several ended up chasing him into an alley, where they hit him with flashlights and used pepper spray on his face.
