I worked security at Slidebar that night.
The bartender called the cops, not the manager, as I recall. Popov had a standing order to say that any homeless problems outside were to be handled by calling the cops and saying that someone´s lifting handles on cars. If they were inside causing trouble you were supposed to call the cops and say that you THINK you saw a gun. Otherwise the police never come; not unless you make those claims. No one that´s ever met Popov would claim that he´s good to the homeless, or that he´s a decent guy. He´s not exactly a class-act.
The other security guy, Baby Huey, and I saw Thomas screaming and jerking-off at the bus depot as we walked from the parking garage to Slidebar for our shift. We mentioned it to the head of security (Will), and rest is history.
That´s what really happened, if anyone cares to know.
