Cross-eyed boozer ‘starts’ bar brawl

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A BAR fight broke out after a cross-eyed man was ac­cused of giv­ing some­one “a funny look”.

The bizarre in­ci­dent took place at a busy karaoke bar in south­ern China’s Sichuan prov­ince.

It be­gan when a drunk cus­tomer took of­fence to the way he was be­ing stared at by a man who suf­fers from es­otropia – the con­di­tion which causes cross-eyes.

He then sub­jected the man to a “se­vere beat­ing”, ac­cord­ing to court re­ports.

On­look­ers say the bar’s owner tried to in­ter­vene but was shoved away dur­ing the as­sault which lasted five min­utes un­til cops ar­rived.

The at­tacker told them that the vic­tim had been star­ing at him strangely in an at­tempt to mock him.

A po­lice source said: “After in­form­ing him that the vic­tim was sim­ply cross-eyed, he seemed apolo­getic.”
