Kicked out of Jacks Bar 539 Richmond Street , London Ontario

An outrage occured this evening. I was at Jack's bar. (539 Richmond Street)

I was on the second level bathroom of Jack’s Bar which is located at 539 Richmond Street, London Ontario around 12:55pm on Sunday May 29 2005 (Saturday Night). I was in a bathroom stall and I heard what I thought was someone asking incessantly if I was done. I came out of the stall in a rage to confront the impatient soul, but it turned out it was a bouncer who worked for the Jack’s. He informed me that he was addressing the person in the next stall and then proceeded to look over the top of the stall to watch what the person was doing. As I witnessed this first hand I informed them that watching someone ‘going to the bathroom’ wasn't exactly legal. I was promptly kicked out of the bar even though I insisted on speaking to the manager. The London Police happened to be outside of the door (Constables O'Riley and Daley). They informed me that I was drunk and had no recourse. I then said that I'd be recording their names into my cell phone voice memo recorder to later report this incident and they ACTUALLY THREATHENED TO ARREST ME FOR DOING THIS!!! (They claimed that they would officially arrest me for being drunk in public). I recorded the officers names into my phone anyways as O'Riley and Daley as soon as they were out of earshot, I later called the London police to ask the proper spelling of their names.. They informed me of them, and when I asked for the first name, they said "constable will do". After I asked again for their first name wondering if they were the only ones bearing that surname they hung up on me.

I wasn't able to catch up with Bryan, Craig & Kayla after I was kicked out due to my cell phone batterying dying while I was explaining to Kayla that I was kicked out.

Next time I should probably mind my own business I guess...

    lawl, thats funny. i hate cops for that reason. they are powerless to elp you in your time of need, but when it comes to punishing you they are always there.

    ... I can't understand the cop thing but I work at a really busy bar and trust me, when you've dealt with drunk people mouthing you off all night, you tend not to take any back talk from anyone... even if its innocently defending some idiot who has locked themselves in a bathroom stall... as for the police, I am sure they get sooo many calls because of cops dealing with drunk patrons and just assumed you were another drunken mouthy customer... bad luck but hope it hasn't changed your opinion of London or Jacks...

    Was it so important that you try to prove you were right by wasting cops time. Did you think that the bouncer maybe had a reason to be checking in on the person in the stall. Everyday laws are broken for these reasons. in hte grand scheme of things does it matter. Were you expecting the police to bust down the bar and close it?

    Similar situation happened to me yesterday where I was kicked out. Security guy comes up and singles me out and tells me that I am kicked out. This was my first and last time going to London.

    unrelated but ive paid coat check at Jack's twice now and they have lost both jackets... the offered absolutely no reason as to how this could happen and no offer as to what they were prepared to do about it. thats paying rent for safe keeping on your property. neglegence and ignorance at this place as cost me $300.00 now. my advice to anyone is to NOT GO THERE.

    Yes I saw them do the same thing this st. Patrick's day. A girl was in the bathroom stall drunk, and a male bouncer was staring at her, but other girls in the washroom at the time told him to leave. I mean if she is intoxicated to the point where it could be dangerous to her health then he probably should help or else the club is liable, however a better method would be for the male bouncers to get one of the female staff or waitresses to check on intoxicated female guests who are using the bathroom.
