24-year-old Damon Hodge Jr. was arrested in the early morning hours of October 16th, following a police call of a large group of 10-12 people fighting with weapons near 1002 Buchanan Street. After arriving and being told that no one was on the scene, Hodge was seen approaching with a handgun and became combative with another group of individuals. When officers made contact with Hodge, they had to tell him multiple times to drop his handgun. Security stated that he was a member of the brawl they were called out for, and officers noticed he reeked of alcohol. When questioned, Hodge said that he was returning to defend himself from others who had attacked him.
