Some heated words of an unknown nature were exchanged between the khakied gent and a couple of other patrons from the club while he was waiting for a taxi. Then the suspect allegedly punched two of the men.

One of the victims wound up losing consciousness, and it was then that some of the other guys standing nearby decided to step in and break it up, according to police.
