OMAHA (KPTM)- A fight between two brothers and a group of men at a bar gains a lot of attention. One of those brothers wants the public to hear their side of the story.
Right now it's unclear what caused the fight – but they say it's because they were mistaken for being gay. They've reached out to the media and posted a video on YouTube so someone can be punished.
But the bar's owner is lashing back.
"Whatever happened out there I don't know, it's unclear. There's an investigation," McFly's Tavern owner Mark Lampe said.
"It's all black and blue. Cut right here on my forehead. Cuts and scrapes," Nate Hall described his injuries from the fight.
There are opposing details about the fight that took place outside the bar. Police came to McFly's on 42nd and Center twice Sunday around closing time.
Both incidents involved Nate and Cory Hall. Nate said four men jumped him and his brother because they thought the two were gay. He admits he and Cory were drinking, but that is not why they lashed back.
"Any kind of slur against people-race, sexuality, religious views I don't stand for."
No arrests were made. Police are still investigating the case to see if a hate crime occurred.
Later after the bar closed and police left, Nate said they went back to look for his wallet. He said the owner turned them away.
"That's when he said ‘well you were asking for it' and I said ‘why because they thought I was gay?' and he looked at me dead in the eye and said yes," Hall recalled.
Mark Lampe denied his claim. He said he yelled at them because they kept banging and kicking on the door.
"He [Nate] mentioned that he'd been assaulted more than once, is what it was. And I said ‘I can kind of see why now'," Lampe said.
Police handcuffed Cory and gave him a littering ticket for urinating on the sidewalk. Nate argued this detail is irrelevant.
He feels what's relevant is that the bar and his attackers are held accountable.
"I just want people to be aware and people to start thinking about their actions. Start thinking about their words and how they really do affect people," Hall said.
"I don't think that there's anything that we could have done to prevent that," Lampe said.
Nate said later Sunday his wallet was left on his front porch. He doesn't know who returned it.
OPD has not released a full report yet. Neither has footage from surveillance cameras.
