I first learned of my 86 status last week from a source who shall remain anonymous. This person was at the bar to check out Jeramiah Red and took notice of the bouncer's podium, which had on it two photos of yours truly, along with a mandate not to allow me on the premises under any circumstances. The pictures most likely came from my Facebook page.
So here, I'll give the Slidebar guys another chance to respond: Fullerton Police spokeshole Andrew Goodrich has maintained police were responding to calls made that night of a man breaking into cars near the transportation center (which is right next to the Slidebar). After the fact, there's been no indication that Thomas was actually breaking into cars. Did the caller falsely tell police they saw Thomas breaking into cars so as to elicit an aggressive response to a nuisance? Did police coach the Slidebar in how to make this call? Do the police and Slidebar, as some commenters have suggested, enjoy a cozy relationship?
A call was placed to the bar yesterday. I was told someone would get back to me as to my banning. The clock is still ticking….
