Alex Coelho, Beaten in Dirty Blondes Bar Fight: "Troublemaker"?

When the owner of Dirty Blondes finally issued a statement following his bouncers' savage beatdown of a patron last Sunday -- which was caught on video and has ignited a firestorm of criticism -- his words were terse.

"It looks like it was a bunch of troublemakers who came to the bar drunk causing trouble," bar owner A.J. Yaari told the Sun Sentinel last night. "Now, they are just trying to make us look bad."
