42-year-old Michael Robert Slavik had an altercation with a security guard, Devin Ray Goodman, at Agave Maria on March 25th. The police were called regarding an intoxicated male, later identified as Slavik, refusing to pay his tab. When officers arrived, they noticed security guards had him pinned down. Goodman spoke with officers and stated that he was called to the bar because Slavik did not want to pay his tab. The supervising security guard attempted to obtain a form of payment from Slavik, who was uncooperative. After being unable to obtain a form of payment, security told Slavik he should leave the property instead. Slavik then left the property but came back a short time later. Security repeatedly told Slavik he had to leave and that if he returned, he would be trespassed. Slavik began to get upset and pushed himself toward security as if he was going to fight them. Slavik told Goodman, “I am going to smack you,” and tried to smack him in the face, but Goodman avoided him. Slavik then asked Goodman’s manager, “Can I smack him?” and then attempted to smack him a second time, but he was able to avoid that as well. Slavik then attempted to punch Goodman in the face but failed. Goodman and the other security guards then pinned Slavik down to the ground due to him fighting back. Shortly after the incident, police arrived and arrested Slavik. Slavik then pulled away from police repeatedly, causing a disturbance, cursing at them, and reeked of alcohol. Slavik was taken into custody for assault, theft, public intoxication, and disorderly conduct.
