Ric Flair has given his side of a recent incident that led him to get kicked out of a bar in Indiana.
Appearing on ESPN's Dan LeBatard Show, Flair broke down the interaction with the bartender at The Deck at The Gas House in Fort Wayne, IN, as follows:
“I walked in [and] said to the guy, ‘Will you please put on the golf tournament?’ It’s only The Masters, right? He goes, ‘What do you think this is, a sports bar?’ ‘I didn’t say it was a sports bar, I asked you to put on The Masters.' ”
Flair noted the bartender refused to change the channel, and they got in another verbal fracas when Flair asked for a second drink, with the bartender using the same glass a second time.
According to Flair, he asked, " 'Sir, doesn’t a premium drink require a new glass?’ And he goes, ‘Are you telling me how to bartend?’ And I said, ‘Not if I don’t have to, dumbass.’ ‘Did you call me a dumbass?’ ‘I can call you a dumbass, or a fat ass. Both work.'”
Multiple people who said they were in the bar at the time noted Flair was in the bar less than five minutes before he was asked to leave.
