Jonathan Scott, 38 may be a pro at renovating houses, but he’s not so good about quietly leaving a bar. The HGTV star is seen getting placed in a chokehold by a bouncer after getting into an argument at a Fargo, ND bar, and the video isn’t pretty!
Jonathan called the cops Apr. 24 claiming he was assaulted at Dempsey’s Public House right around the time the bar was closing. He is shown in the video near a booth as employees are wiping tables down and obviously getting ready to call things a night, when he gets up and appears to get into an argument with some other patrons. There’s some pushing and shoving going on between the Property Brothers star and another man before a bearded bouncer comes along and orders him out of the place, grabbing him and clearly pointing to the exit.
The home renovator made his way towards the exit and other patrons leave behind him, but for some reason he comes back in as the bar has nearly emptied out, looking like he still had a score to settle. That’s when the employees finally have enough and get physical with him, with the bouncer placing him in a chokehold with his large tattooed arm before showing him the door for good this time.
Jonathan later called 911 to say he’d been assaulted, and police responded and took his statement. On May 31 the Fargo City Attorney said there was insufficient evidence to support charges against anyone involved in the nasty run-in.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Jonathan was in the wrong from this video? Or did the bouncer get too physical with him?
