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.'”
