Is it just me or does the Brian’s Ivy Hall sound like a bar that you would see on Family Guy?
Maybe it is just me.
Depending on who you believe eirther Rondo started the fight and ran while his entourage took care of the guy or the guy was drunk and tried to lay the smackdown on Rondo and failed miserably.
You make the call.
A Haverill man was arrested after he threw a punch (which he missed) at Rondo following a public appearance by the Celtics all-star in Lowell.
Police on the scene told the Lowell Sun that the incident took place at 1:43 a.m. Saturday at Brian’s Ivy Hall, located at 74 Merrimack St. in Lowell.
Rondo hosted the Boston Charity Classic basketball game at Harvard University the next night.
According to the Lowell police, Eric Valarezo, 31, attempted to punch Rondo when the event was ending.
The Lowell Sun reported that the club’s owner as well as members of Rondo’s entourage which included Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith (Rondo’s high school teammate at Oak Hill Academy) and former Celtic Nate Robinson, helped subdue Valarezo.
Kevin Hayhurst, co-owner of Brian’s Ivy Hall, told the Sun that he did not know what initiated the scuffle, but added that Rondo was “unpersonable” and “disrespectful toward patrons.”
“It was definitely provoked,” Valarezo told the Sun. “I wasn’t even intoxicated or anything like that.”
Key to fights, if you throw the first punch don’t miss especially if you are throwing a punch at someone with a huge entourage.
End the lockout please.
