A man who was working as a security guard at Caddy’s Tap House in Beavercreek has been charged with assault for an incident at the club that was caught on video.
Dale S. Williams, 39, has pleaded not guilty to a first-degree misdemeanor assault in Fairborn Municipal Court.
According to witnesses who were there, the incident happened after the club’s security responded to a fight that erupted between two men who are known to the alleged victim, an 18-year-old woman.Witnesses said one of the males involved in the fight left the scene and the other was dealt with by the club’s security.
Video taken on a mobile device shows part of what happened during the melee outside the club. It shows a security guard grab and throw a young woman to the pavement.
The 18-year-old woman told police three security guards were on top of her friend and she was trying to get them to leave him alone when the security guard grabbed her.
Williams reported that the guards were working to subdue an intoxicated person and the victim was yelling and using “vulgar language” at them, according to the police report. Williams told police he was advised by the head guard to “get her out of here.”
Beavercreek police responded after receiving a 9-1-1 call from a manager at the club.
“We have a little problem on the back patio and we’re going to need some assistance,” the 9-1-1 caller told the dispatcher. “We have a fight out back, and the crowd is getting involved … Right now, our security has the guy down, but there’s a mob around.”
Williams has been suspended from working at the club pending an investigation, according to Caddy’s Tap House General Manager Dustin Cowan.
Cowan said he doesn’t know what led up to the incident, about 9 seconds of which was caught on the video. He said based on his experience with Williams, what the video shows is out-of-character for him.

GASPER TWP., Preble County — People living near a road construction project along U.S. 127 say drivers are ignoring road closed signs.
There are dozens of signs along U.S. 127, including one in Eaton that gives a 4-mile warning of the road closure ahead.
Shelly Rowland’s house is just behind some railroad tracks, where her family shares a quiet street with a half dozen other homes. There’s only one way in, and one way out.
“That kind of isolates all of us down here on Old Camden Pike and on Brower Road,” she said.
Twice in the last 24 hours, the family’s way out has been blocked.
Brower Road is the last opportunity for drivers to turn around before hitting the construction closure on U.S. 127. But semis often can’t make it over the steep grade of the train tracks to turn around.
Rowland said this is dangerous, “I mean that’s our only way out, Brower Road on 127.”
She said one of her neighbor’s called 911 Wednesday afternoon, but medics were not able to access their street.
“The life squad actually had to carry the person on a gurney over the railroad tracks around the stuck semi to get to the ambulance that’s parked on 127,” Rowland said.
Law enforcement arrived quickly to make sure the rail was shut down.
But with two children, the Rowlands said they are concerned about what their options would be if a semi blocked their path during an emergency.
“If an accident happens with the semis and we’re cut off —which happened twice today, two hours at a time — what do we do? Nobody can get through,” she said.
The Rowlands said there is plenty of signage, but now they hope law enforcement can make sure trucks are turning around sooner than they have been.
