Gay Bashing at El Paso, Texas Nightclub
A 22 year-old man is listed in critical condition today, May 8 2011, after being beaten by a group of men with a baseball bat outside the Old Plantation, a popular El Paso nightclub. Media reports are light with details so far, but police said the man was waiting for a ride outside the Old Plantation Night Club, 301 S. Ochoa, when a verbal confrontation began between the victim and six other males. The verbal confrontation became physical and the six suspects allegedly began punching, kicking the victim. The group allegedly also used a bat to hit the victim. One of the victim's friends, a woman, tried to help and had her vehicle damaged as she tried to do so. A suspect struck her 2003 Jeep Liberty windshield with a bat to stop her from helping the victim. The suspects then fled the area in what appeared to be a van.
