Different version of the same event

A few weeks ago, Nate and I went to the Greyhound and met up with one of his mates who is a regular there. We later heard that he had been bashed when he left the nightclub.

Anyhoo.I was speaking to one of my students today who works at the nightclub as a barman and he tells me that, contrary to what they had also been told, Nate's friend wasn't bashed after all.... He actually fell over and hurt himself when he was in a drunken stupor. I guess being set upon by a couple of thugs sounds a lot more impressive than falling over and breaking your own nose.

On the record as a gay bashing then? Perhaps only informally.

I guess violence tends to be a common asusmption with injuries like that but that's a bizarre twist in the tale.

Bizarre indeed. I don't think it's on the record. It is not desirable for nightclubs to be associated with these things so I doubt they would have reported it.

Maybe the barmen didn't want to fess up and give the Greyhound a bad rep?

EK - I consider that possibility too. It may not be the barman himself but the management.
