A man claiming to be a gang member from Chicago told police he was punched in the face at a Woodbury restaurant and threatened to kill the men involved, according to a police report.
The incident occurred the Green Mill at about 1:15 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 8.
According to the report:
A man in town from Chicago met two other men at the Green Mill bar and they began talking about their gang affiliations. There was “trash talking and disrespect,” the man who was punched told police.
The Chicagoan said he was a Disciple; the other two claimed to be Kings from the east metro.
They went outside, and one of the Kings punched the Disciple, knocking him to the ground. The two area men ran.
Officers spoke with the Chicago man, who was not cooperative and declined police assistance and medical attention.
“This is gang (expletive),” the man is quoted as saying in the report. “The only thing I want is to find them and kill them. Lucky for them they are not at my crib.”
Police made contact with a sober friend, who said he would keep an eye on the Chicago man for the night.
A manager at Green Mill said it seemed that the man who was punched had provoked the fight. The man was issued a trespass notice for the restaurant.
