Video After The Jump
A Worcester, Massachusetts bouncer is in all kinds of trouble today, after a video went viral showing him beating up and robbing a patron at the strip club where he works.
This incident actually happened in May 2010, but just came to light after the video surfaced recently.
35-year-old Easton Byfield suspected a 25-year old unidentified man of selling drugs to dancers at the Platinum Premier Gentelman's club.
For several minutes Byfield questions the man in a bathroom while searching his person, cell phone and wallet, looking for evidence while another bouncer filmed.
Then out of nowhere he punches the guy in the face. When the man tries to leave Byfield blocks his path, then locks the door. He then punches him several more times in the face.
The most bizarre part of the assault happens next when Byfield makes the man get on his knees and kneel to him while saying, "oh great f*cking brown dude."
After taking his money, Byfield lets the victim leave.
Fearing retaliation, the victim didn't report the incident to police, but once the video went viral police found him, and eventually tracked down Byfield.
Perhaps fearing the victim would go to police, Byfield had already made a police report May 25 stating the victim had assaulted him.
He's now been arrested and charged him with assault and battery, kidnapping, unarmed robbery and filing a false police report.
