Victim in Poughkeepsie bar incident declines charges

POUGHKEEPSIE – The victim in an apparent bar brawl in Milo’s Cantina/Bar at 206 Main Street in Poughkeepsie has declined to press criminal charges so city police are dropping the case.

Without a cooperating victim, the police cannot proceed with criminal charges, authorities said.

The case was, however, referred to the state Liquor Authority.

Police were called to the bar at 10:30 p.m. on May 31 for a reported disturbance. When they arrived, the disturbance was over. It is believed the fight began over an unpaid bar tab.

Video of a portion of it had been placed on social media.
