After the third request, the patron allegedly came out of the restroom, ran toward Vaughan and smashed a whiskey glass on his head, the report said. Vaughan said he began bleeding profusely and had to be taken to a hospital.
Earlier this week, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner called for the suspect to be arrested and charged, calling the incident “foolishness.” On Thursday, the mayor announced the arrest on Twitter and reminded residents to wear masks “or stay home.”
