A Chicago man was seriously injured Saturday night in an altercation outside an Oxford bar, according to police.

Oxford police were dispatched about 10:20 p.m. to the Woods Bar, 17 N. Poplar St., on a report of an altercation. They found one of the parties, a male, unresponsive, according to Police Chief John Jones.

The man, who is visiting from Chicago and not a Miami University student, was transported by medical helicopter to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Jones said Sunday the man was in the intensive care unit. His name was not released by police on Sunday.

The man and another male and female, both also visiting from Chicago, were involved in a disturbance inside the bar and escorted outside by the staff. Then there was an altercation when the group began to attack the bar staff, Jones said.

Detectives are still investigating the incident and reviewing surveillance tape. The man and woman involved in the altercation who were not injured were charged with disorderly conduct. Jones said the three people involved were of legal age to consume alcohol.

Jones said anyone who witnessed the incident or has information is asked to call Detective Matt Blauvelt at 513-524-5240.

Hamilton police reported on its Twitter account Sunday that 37-year-old Kevin Gabbard had been arrested.

Officer Roger Gilbert was on patrol on Ohio 4 when he saw a vehicle matching the description of the van, said Fairfield Police Chief Matt Fruchey. When Gilbert stopped the van at Fairway Drive near Waldon Ponds, driver Shauna Maria Maco remained in the vehicle, but the passenger, Gabbard, fled.

The officer gave chase around a house and Gabbard doubled back, jumped in the cruiser and took off, according to police.

Gabbard drove the cruiser to Hamilton where he ditched it on Central Avenue near Hanover Street and robbed a person outside a barber shop, Fruchey said.

Maco, 46, of Hamilton, was charged with complicity to theft, and is housed in the Butler County Jail.

Fruchey said the cruiser was not damaged and the incident remains under investigation. The stolen televisions were found in the van.

Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones also made note of the arrest, with his tweet: “Good job Hamilton PD.”
