Hillsboro man arrested in Aloha bar fight
A Hillsboro man was arrested on multiple charges after he tried to stab other patrons and security staff at an Aloha bar early Sunday.
Jonathan Lemarroy, 39, of Hillsboro is charged him with assault in the second degree, riot, menacing, felon in possession of a weapon, disorderly conduct in the second degree, unlawful use of a weapon and parole violation. His bail is set at $250,000.
No one was seriously injured in the incident.
According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, at 12:06 a.m. on Jan. 14, deputies responded to Club Underground at 18641 S.W. Tualatin Valley Highway after multiple 911 callers reported a man armed with a knife causing a disturbance.
When deputies arrived, they found security staff on the floor, struggling with a man armed with a knife. During the struggle, the suspect swung the knife at others in an attempt to stab them. He suffered a minor cut to his own hand. Ultimately, the man was disarmed and detained.
The WCSO says that during their investigation, deputies learned that the altercation started when a man accidentally bumped into another man while entering the restroom. A short time later, when the other man left the restroom, the suspect flashed some hand signals and pulled out a knife.
Security staff immediately intervened and several patrons called 911.
