A bartender at the establishment confirmed the suspects were asked to leave. The victim did not wish to press charges and the suspects signed a trespass warning.
Deputies were dispatched to the Public Beach in reference to a battery. They observed three male subjects matching the description of the possible suspect descriptions given to dispatch, walking along Beach Rd.

He stated he told the Uber driver to unlock the window so he could make contact with the female. He said the driver refused to pull over to help the female and a verbal altercation ensued. He advised the driver pulled over and kicked them out of the vehicle and that the altercation was only verbal and never physical. A deputy made contact with the driver who agreed with the suspect statement although, he added, that during the altercation, he was slapped in the back of the head by the suspect. The victim later said he did not want to press charges and signed a waiver of prosecution.
