Ben Eager Facing Assault Charges After Bar Fight

from CityNews Toronto,

NHL tough guy Ben Eager is facing charges after an alleged fight at a Toronto bar.

The Edmonton Oiler and his brother Michael are both facing assault charges after an incident involving a doorman.

It happened at The Quail pub on Yonge street around 1 a.m., Saturday.

Jennine Lombardo, general manager at The Quail and Firkin Pub, told CityNews the fight began inside the bar and then moved outdoors. The doorman allegedly had to hold up a patio chair to shield himself from the attack.

"We are used to dealing with young professionals. Last night stopped staff dead in their tracks and is not typical of what happens at our establishment. Once the fight started, service ended immediately. Our staff was in shock. And we are concerned for our door man who was brutally attacked and hurt." said Lombardo.
