Four intoxicated patrons of a local lounge who were refusing to leave the premises after being asked to do so, were the subject of police attention later that night.

In this instance, neither of the two people involved in the fracas wanted to pursue charges against the other, so the combatants departed the scene, heading in separate directions and no further police action was seen to be necessary.
