Deputies: Victim in ICU after bar assault

Posted: Updated:

Deputies are investigating an assault inside a Spartanburg County bar that sent a man to the intensive care unit of the hospital early Saturday mornings.

According to incident reports, deputies were called to Friendz on Highway 9 in Inman around 1:30 a.m.

Deputies said EMS technicians were treating the victim when they arrived and took him to the hospital before deputies could get a statement.

Witnesses told deputies two men had assaulted the victim after one of the men was ranting about his hat being stolen, according to incident reports.

Bouncers told deputies the two men drove off in a white or gold Honda Accord.

Witnesses said one of the men was wearing a pink shirt, blue jeans and a baseball cap. The other was seen in a red shirt with a white shirt underneath and shorts.

Deputies went to Spartanburg Regional Hospital to make contact with the victim, but ER personnel told deputies that the victim had been taken to Neuro-ICU, had been intubated, and was unable to speak, according to incident reports.

Deputies said the case was passed on to violent crimes investigators.
