The report said that Houston police arrested a suspect in connection with the violent attack on a bar employee on Monday night who claimed that due to the coronavirus, a customer was required to wear a mask during the company’s business.
Police Chief Art Acevedo wrote in a Twitter message that the suspect was charged with assault and bodily harm by the authorities, who identified him as 32-year-old Patrick Kelly.
According to Houston’s FOX 26 report, barrister employee Josh Vaughan worked intermittently at the Grand Prix Bar in the city’s museum district for nearly seven years.
Vaughan told the station that on Monday night, the customer seemed to become frustrated after being repeatedly asked to wear a mask.
The report said that after the third request, the customer allegedly walked out of the bathroom, ran to Vaughan, and smashed the whiskey glass. Vaughan said he started bleeding profusely and had to be taken to the hospital.

Earlier this week, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner called for the arrest and prosecution of the suspect, calling it “stupid.”
Vaughan said he had a CT scan after the alleged attack, and he now has 10 stitches on his head. In addition, he told himself that he often had headaches, he told FOX 26.
