Punch in the Face Gets Man Banned from Casino

VALLEY FORGE PA – A fight at a bar Sunday morning (Oct. 24, 2021) at 1:13 a.m. inside the Valley Forge Casino Resort, 1160 First Ave., caused Pennsylvania State Police to charge a 37-year-old Eagleville man with harassment by physical contact. The incident also resulted in his permanent eviction from the casino premises, according to information released by the state’s Troop K Barracks in Skippack.

Troopers working at the facility on behalf of the state Bureau of Gaming Enforcement said the man was engaged in conversation at the casino’s Center Bar with another individual, a 25-year-old male from Phoenixville. Their talk involved the girlfriend of the Phoenixville victim, troopers reported, and at one point during it the Eagleville man “punched the victim in the face.”

Troopers did not say what seemed to have enraged the alleged assailant.

The Eagleville man was taken into custody and escorted to the troopers’ office within the casino, was issued a non-traffic citation for the harassment charge, and then was banned from and escorted off the property. He is due to appear at a later date in the Bridgeport courtroom of Magisterial District Justice James Gallagher, troopers said.
