O’Brien accepts bar apology
O’Brien described the altercation at The Long Room saying, “I was totally in control of my faculties, having a private conversation with my son on a mobile phone where I moved out of a bar that was too loud to talk to him in, and obviously, I was minding my own business and was no threat to anybody. And suddenly I’m being frogmarched out of a building.”
The 7:30 Report presenter said he discussed the incident with the bar manager and the “overreaction” by the venue’s bouncer. “He apologised and then invited me back into the bar, and I went into the bar for another hour,” he said.
“If there’s a point to be made out of this, it’s once again about how well-prepared bouncers are to react properly to a range of unpredictable circumstances,” he said.
