[UPDATE] Drunk Woman Attacks Local Restaurant Man With Stiletto and Cracks His Skull (San Francisco)
UPDATE: April 11th, 2012 @ 1:05 PM – The suspect has been identified thanks to the internet and social networking. The police are moving forward with an investigation and updates will follow if I hear any more information in regards to the situation and/or the suspect’s name.
Matt Meidinger, the general manager at Jasper’s Corner Tap & Kitchen and the former manager at Clock Bar is trying to find a belligerently drunk woman who slammed her stiletto onto his head before fleeing the scene in a cab. You would think everything would be fine, but Meidinger spent the night in the Emergency Room (or at least he tweeted that he did) on Saturday evening. He also stated that the reason for his ER visit was because the drunk blonde “cracked [his] skull”.
We wrapped up our one beer at Balboa and walked out to try and grab a cab. While standing there a woman (who I understand to have also just left Balboa) bent down to take off her black Louboutin‘s and put on flip flops for the trip home. As she was doing this (in the middle of a very busy sidewalk) a man passing by accidentally kicked one of her shoes. Not down the street or anything, just bumped it with his own shoe. She started yelling at him and as he turned around to apologize with his hands already up in the air a good sized man with her punched him! I was standing a few feet away and watched the whole thing happen. I spoke up and said, “Whoa! Take it easy! Kicking a shoe doesn’t equal a punch in the face, Louboutin’s or not!” As the guy turned around to tell me to mind my own business the woman ran up and said, “Yes, it does!” and came down on top of my head with her heels. Blood immediately started pouring down the left side of my face so I pulled out my phone and called the police. At that point another of her guys (she was with two men, both early 30′s between 6’2″ and 6’5″, 230-260lbs) ran over and told me to get off the phone. I said no and started to back away. He then punched me, grabbed my phone from me and threw it across the street. A random man on the street ran up and gave me his phone at that time insisting that I call the police back (This guy stayed the whole time, gave a thorough statement and did all he could to help. I don’t know his name, but I owe him a big thank you). At this point the two guys had both started fights with my two friends while I was running around on a strangers phone with the police while trying to keep an eye on the woman who was frantically running away. In the confusion, all three of them got away before the police had a chance to arrive.
Obviously, he is trying to find any information he cane, because someone has to cover the hospital bill as well as take responsibility for cracking a guy’s skull with her damn stiletto. It’s pretty impressive that she was able to hit him so hard, considering how drunk (according to many) she was. If you have any information at all, let Meidinger know, you can Contact him here. He’s offering a $500 reward.
