3rd arrest in a month at popular Beavercreek night spot

Police in Beavercreek responded to another disturbance at Caddy's Tap House early Friday and the subsequent arrest is the third in a month at the popular night spot.

Jonah Lernon Bryant Fugate, 21, of Englewood, was taken to Jail about 1:30 a.m. and is facing a misdemeanor assault charge after a fight broke out in the bar, at 2760 Towne Drive in Beavercreek. 

Fugate has been released from jail and permanently banned from the establishment, according to a supplemental police incident report.

The 19-year-old victim told officers some guys were "messing with his girlfriend" and when he said something to them, the group attacked him with punches and kicks, according to the police report. 

The suspect denied hitting the victim and told police it was somebody else, but he was arrested after the victim's girlfriend identified him as the one who threw the first punch.

It was the third incident at the bar in recent weeks that's hit the news. 

On Aug. 15, police responded to a fight at Caddy's and ended up arresting one of the bouncers, 39-year-old Dale S. Williams, for an alleged assault on an 18-year-old female. 

Williams, who was charged with misdemeanor assault, remains on suspension from the club. 

On July 30, former University of Dayton Flyers basketball player Sam Miller was arrested at Caddy's for disorderly conduct. Police said Miller is accused of pushing a female bartender and acting belligerently in the back of a Beavercreek police cruiser while on the way to jail. 

Police said they don't consider Caddy's to be a problem spot, but there are increased patrols and responses to disturbances during what's considered college night on Thursdays, when patrons 18-and-up are welcomed.
