Uno Tapas Lounge shut down after fight

SPOKANE, Wash.- Tuesday night just before midnight, a number of people checked themselves into Deaconess Medical Center after someone released pepper spray into Uno Tapas Restaurant and Lounge.

According to Spokane Police officers, who arrived at the scene just after the pepper spray was released, they were originally called to the scene because of reports of shots fired. When they showed up, a bouncer told them that shots actually had not been fired, but that a fight that had broken out minutes before.

The fight and the pepper spray incident coincided, forcing dozens out of the restaurant and into the street. By the time officers arrived, the fight was over but they did see people recovering from  the effects of pepper spray. Symptoms included choking, gagging, tears, and, according to at least one witness, someone passed out. However, Spokane Police officers could not confirm that anyone passed out.

Officers cleared the area and since no one was willing to come forward to discuss the alleged fight, there was no one to arrest. They were also unable to find who sprayed the pepper spray. The bar was shut down for the remainder of Tuesday night.

Officers say someone who wanted to expedite police officers to the scene probably placed the original call of shots fired. They say lying about an emergency situation is not only ill-advised, but also illegal.
