Man accuses Altus nightclub bouncers of attack

Posted: Updated:

ALTUS, Okla._ A man here is continuing to recover after he says he was attacked outside a nightclub last weekend.  

Lazel Fisher says he was punched in the eye by one man and beaten by three of the club's bouncers. He wants all people responsible for his attack arrested. 

"My friends and I decided to go out and have a few drinks and the night turned evil," says Fisher, stating the incident could have been prevented all together. 

It happened in parking lot of Scooters, 2101 E. Broadway Street, after 2 a.m. when dozens of people were leaving the place. 

 "As I'm walking out of the front door, a guy is standing on the side of the building and he pops out of the side out of no where and hits me in my eye," says Fisher. 

It was then, in the wee hours of the morning, when Fisher claims he was surrounded and attacked by the club's bouncers. 

"All I can remember is them beating me and just hitting my head into the concrete repeatedly." 

Altus Police Chief Tim Murphy says the scene was chaotic when officers arrived. Since Sunday morning, police have identified the suspect responsible for throwing the initial punch. Fisher now wants the bouncers who beat him badly to also face assault charges. 

"I have a blown knee … it's hard for me to breathe from my ribs when I was kicked," says Fisher, of the injuries allegedly sustained by the bouncers.

Chief Murphy says, however, there's no clear evidence of the bouncers being involved aside from a witness statement stating three of the club's bouncers grabbed Fisher, slammed him on the hood of a car and choked him with a flashlight while he lay unconscious.

"At this point we don't know what involvement the bouncers had, if any, of what injuries were sustained by the victim," says Murphy.

Lazel says the proof is in his bodily injuries, and he wants justice for their alleged wrongdoing.

"I'm happy I'm alive because I believe those bouncers were out to kill me," says Fisher.

Altus Police have filed charges with the district attorney against the suspect who they believe punched Fisher. The district attorney's office said Wednesday afternoon they were awaiting further evidence and that they expect to file formal assault and battery charges later this week.
