A local man was injured early Saturday at a downtown Union City bar, but currently no charges have been levied against anyone.
Justin Robert Bailey, 33, of 914 North Division St., Union City, sustained injury shortly before 3 a.m. at Bottoms Up, located at 112 South First St., Union City police reported today.
Bailey was transported to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City and was later transferred to Baptist Memorial East Hospital in Memphis for treatment of apparent head injuries.
Police and emergency medical personnel re-sponded to the bar at 2:52 a.m. Saturday after receiving a report of a man who was lying on the bathroom floor and was allegedly unresponsive, bleeding and foaming at the mouth. An officer arrived on the scene to find a woman holding Bailey, who was lying on the floor unconscious, according to a Union City Police Department report.
Police questioned several people about what might have happened to Bailey and witnesses told officers that Bailey and another man, identified as 28-year-old Noah Rushing Adams of Obion, had exchanged words earlier in the night. Police said during the investigation, there were several accounts that corroborated claims that Adams allegedly hit Bailey in an act of self defense.
No charges had been filed against anyone at the time of the report Saturday morning, according to police.
No other injuries were reported in the incident.
