Vinnie Jones Charged for Bar Fight Brawl in South Dakota


Last week, movie star and football (thats soccer to you yanks) player Vinnie Jones started a brawl in a South Dakota bar with two of the patrons.  Jones, who was intoxicated at the time of the fight, was waiting for a pool table being used by locals Juan Barrera and Jesse Bickett.  During the altercation, which was allegedly started by Jones, Jones was smashed in the face with a beer glass by Bickett.  Undeterred by the blood streaming from his face, Jones continued to beat the hell out of Barrera.

Think of any of the multiple scenes in a Guy Ritchie movie where Jones beats the hell out of some poor hooligan.  Now apply that image of the snarling and enraged Jones to the real world.

Currently, Jones has been charged with three counts of simple assault.  If Jones is found guilty of all three, he could face up to $2000 in fines and a year in jail.  There has been no word from Jones criminal defense representation or if the Barrera and Bickett plan to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Brawl Erupts After Three 6 Mafia Set

After Three 6 Mafia were done with a set at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, a brawl broke out that had to be put to a stop by the L.A. County Sheriffs deputies who swarmed the club.  Two people were later arrested, and a woman was taken to the hospital on a gurney.

No deputies were shot, but no word if any of the Sheriffs were gunned down.
