PUT-IN-BAY, OH (WOIO) –
A pitcher for the Cleveland Indians was involved in an incident at the Roundhouse Bar on Put-In-Bay early Monday morning.
According to the police report, Joe Smith and another man were placed in hand restraints by officers after a fight at the bar.
Smith apparently tried to enter the bar without his identification. When questioned by security, Smith informed them he was a pitcher for the Cleveland Indians. Security didn’t accept his answer of being a professional athlete as a proper form of identification.
According to Smith, security became rude and removed him from the property. A fight then ensued between a member of Smith’s party and another man.
Police failed to locate the other man involved in the fight during their investigation, and did not file any criminal charges or citations.
Police also say the mother of Smith’s girlfriend held out a large folded stack of $100 bills and offered the cash as a tip to officers. They did not take the money.
