Kung Fu Saloon might lose or get its liquor license revoked, according to Statesman, after the assault of a patron at the bar. The altercation occurred last November, when customer Joey O’Hare left the bar and was attacked by Robert Camillone, a Kung Fu employee. The incursion was so severe, O’Hare required brain surgery. Camillone was charged with aggravated assault. As reported by the Statesman,
Harry Nanos, a captain for the Austin district of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, said the investigation could result in the Kung Fu Saloon possibly having its liquor license suspended or revoked.
"Each case is looked at on its own merits," Nanos said Wednesday. "We don’t take these things lightly."
Kung Fu Saloon has gotten into trouble many times in the past, including four TABC violations, one of which resulted in a $600 fine, as well as being accused of enforcing a racist dress code.
