Red Lake Falls man files civil lawsuit against Fargo bar, former bouncers

(Fargo, ND) – A Red Lake Falls, Minn., man has filed a civil lawsuit against a Fargo bar and two former bouncers. The charges stem from a July 23 incident at The Old Broadway in Fargo.

According to court documents obtained by WDAY Radio, Colton Nobles, a Red Lake Falls, Minn., resident, has filed a personal injury suit against The Old Broadway and two of its former bouncers, Jeremy Dalton and Jalal Buckner.

The suit alleges that, on July 23, Nobles and his girlfriend were at The Old Broadway as patrons of the bar. Dalton and Buckner were working as bouncers for the bar.

The two bouncers approached Nobles in a “harassing and intimidating manner,” according to court documents. Dalton then struck Nobles in the face with a closed fist, causing the victim to fall backwards and hit his head on the concrete, rendering him unconscious. Buckner then kicked him in the head, causing his head to hit the ground for a second time.

Nobles suffered a concussion, facial fractures, brain bleeding and a traumatic brain injury, according to court documents.

The lawsuit called the acts by Dalton and Buckner “intentional, extreme and outrageous.”

Nobles is seeking a minimum of $50,000 and a jury trial in the matter.

Buckner and Dalton were charged criminally in the case, and those cases are still pending.
