2 men wounded in bar fight; man hospitalized

A bar fight Sunday night sent a pair of badly wounded warriors off bleeding and to the hospital, according to Lawton police.

LPD Officer James Vogt and other officers were called at 8 p.m. to Chele's Club, 609 S. Sheridan, on the report of men bleeding from the head with injuries from a bar fight. An emergency dispatcher said one was bleeding profusely, according to radio traffic. Vogt arrived and found two men "injured badly"  one had severe cuts to his nose, missing teeth and head trauma, and the second had wounds to his face and severe damage to his right eye, the report states. Both men were transported to Comanche County Memorial Hospital for treatment. No charges had been filed as of Tuesday evening.

Vogt reported that employees and patrons at the club were "uncooperative." The incident took place out of security camera view or, at least, was unable to be found at the time police were at the scene. 

Man hospitalized following melee

Sunday fun day reverie turned into a Monday morning nightmare for some north Lawton club-goers.

LPD Officer Tina Bendele was called shortly after 2 a.m. closing time to the Rock-N-R Bar, 2609 Cache Road, on the report of a disturbance. An employee told her that two men began fighting inside the club before they went out the entrance. Bendele reported there was broken glass inside and outside the bar along with a broken pool stick found outside the entrance door. There was also blood by the front door and inside the bar. The officer reported the employee wasn't cooperative in providing details about the incident, except to say there was video.
