Anyone that punches Steve Ott in the face is a batty. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body.

Why don't you people stop being cry babies and stick up for yourselves?
Why call the police when obviously this guy could have just been a man and fought the guy. I don't understand why you can't understand that is what men do. Men stick up for themselves they do not rely on others to do it for them. Had Steve punched him back it would have been over and the guy would have walked away bloody as well ....done...not wasting my tax dollars on police time finding some guy who got into a fight.

To all the bigots who will comment after this is said. I'll tell you what would happen they would be shouting Black man with knife, gun etc. run. So with that being said and Linden St not mentioned he was white, right? No monkey jokes today!

He didn't pull a knife, Steve was just a little girl and ran and told the police instead of giving this punk a good beating like he deserved. Did you even read the story?

No Steve should have been a man and given this guy a beating that he deserved and kept the cops out of it. He is costing us a lot of money (tax dollars) if he would just Man up this punk would never do this again. Now he will go through the court system and beat up someone else again and again until someone beats him up.

He punches him back- but instead of taking it like he deserved, the guy gets a lawyer, and we know the rest- not worth it.

No that guy started the fight (some broke punk) Steve could have ended it right there. There were witnesses instead Steve drags this out and cries about getting punched to the police. He should have been a man and beat this punk up!

I do not understand your point? First the word is went not wendt (learn to spell it will help you in life). Secondly, why are you sticking up for a punk that sucker punched Steve Ott? Like I said before Steve should have taken the punk out and beaten his ass right there and not gotten the police involved like a man.

I have to admit in the 21st century it's almost impossible to man up in situations like this. This country has become so infested with lawyers and customer service departments whose only job is to handle complaints for whiny cowards who don't have the courage to take responsibility for their own lives. Steve may have been able to do that, possibly he used his intellect and realized it was a no-win situation. You may be able to win every battle, but is it worth the cost? You have to know which battles to choose and which to walk away from.
