When Puget Sound Energy, rendered the scene safe for evacuation, the officer smelled alcohol on the driver's breath. The driver said he was on his way home from a local tavern and had three to four beers. He was held under arrest.

When he arrived, the fight had been broken up and two groups of people were detained in casino security. One man had a bloody nose; he said another man grabbed his girlfriend's rear. He told the grabber to 'calm down,' but the man punched him in the face. All three men in the holding cell denied touching any women and said the others had started the fight. The officer watched the surveillance video and saw one group on a wall by some slot machines. The second group walked past; at no time did the officer see them touch the woman. The first group of men at the wall said something to the other group as they walked by. Punches were thrown, and about 20 people started fighting or tried to break up the fight.
