This is why you refrain from the shouting match on scene and while intoxicated....it sounds like they deserved this.

I've worked club security here, every once in awhile someone has to get all douchey and think they are better than the people running a multi-million dollar establishment that serves thousands of people nightly with no problem whatsoever.

Have to admit, if I heard her story and then the server's accusation, I'd be inclined to believe the server, too.
our table was by the steps, so she was elevated, she did not toss it at her head, the drink spilled on the server's chest when she stumbled in her six inch heels. again, it was her reaction--a chuckle--and not the act itself, methinks....the glass did not touch her, just a bit vodka...

we are not the kind of people to throw drinks at people's heads.

in any event, if the glass is pointed upward and one is propelled forward the contents will spew upward...basic physics man.

if you are inclined to believe the server after reading what i wrote then I question your objectivity, logic, and deductive skills

oh my old friend, the grammar police....you are pickier than my professors at Columbia

If you work security you know that these types of incidents happen all day every day....i saw no less than five people banned from the casino during the time they were in the tank.

that being said, i agree that people should not be civil, servers should not argue with patrons, and patrons should not argue with staff...agreed....people should be able to pee way their money in peace.

Out of thousands of people, five proved themselves douchey enough to wind up in the tank? It tanks a special kind of stupid...especially in this town where the casinos and security really are very tolerant and reserved.

I no longer work security BTW.

. gasp, there are more important things to denote intellect, aptitude, and contribution to society...but yea, grammar is important...

i agree that people should be civil and not get drunk and shout at others. whether i would use the term douchey to describe all of them is another matter

cheers mate, how ya been?

I think you're vastly underestimating the "doucheyness" of the employees who THINK they run a million dollar clubs and are better than their customers.

That said, I'm sure a ton of the people who frequent clubs are d-bags.

I morph into one when I enter them these palces bring out the worse in ya...


as much as folks dump on Metro, in my negative interactions with them they have always been really cool and professional. They are a very reasonable bunch and if you are not a jerk or serious criminal they treat you failry and are a OK in my book.

I've not had any interactions with metro outside of going to the station to file a couple reports. I don't want to be shot so I try and avoid them. I have had a few run ins with NHP though and those guys have been cool for the most part.only in Nevada have I ever been given the slow down motion instead of getting a ticket. Couple weeks ago - in the middle of nowhere - between here and Reno I passed a cop doing 105. He must have been sleeping.

This is not a case of who believes who. Since the server who made the accusation considered the alleged incident as hostile and threatening. Casino Security had no other alternative to having your party 86 from the property. If Security was doing the job properly. They should have offered every one in the party the opportunity to fill out an written statement on their recollection of the incident. The server will have to fill one out for Security to justify their actions.
I would like to say that Security acts accordingly to each situation but that has not always been my observation. Some do the job well and are teflon coated and know how to deal with difficult patrons. Others take it personally and let emotion take control and things tend to get out of hand.
