According to a Lubbock police report, two people were assaulted after being accused of being University of Texas fans at a bar in Lubbock on Tuesday evening, February 1, 2022.
The altercation occurred around 8:30 p.m. at the 2400 block of Broadway Street.
The police were dispatched to University Medical Center to assess the victims.
The first victim had a red swollen mark and abrasion on the side of his head, according to the police report.
The first victim told police that an unknown male was intoxicated and refused to let the victim and his friends into the bar, accusing them of being UT fans. Many people in the bar were also encouraged to boo the victim by the suspect.
The victim informed the suspect that he was a Texas Tech fan rather than a UT fan but that the crowd was already riled up and that the suspect was intoxicated. Before hitting the victim, the suspect yelled profanities at him.
Several people joined the fight, and the victim’s friend was assaulted as well, despite the fact that he was not involved in the initial confrontation.
The second victim, according to police, was in a wheelchair at the hospital, vomiting into a bucket and having dried blood on his face. One of his eyes was also bruised and swollen shut.
The second victim claimed he was assaulted while at a bar when a fight broke out.
He claimed that his friends assisted him in leaving the bar and transporting him to the hospital.
There had been no updates on the case as of Wednesday afternoon, and the suspect had not been found.
