McSwiggan reportedly informed the deputies that he left The Abbey nightclub with 3 males he didn’t know and was unable to identity, claiming to have been brutally beaten shortly right after leaving the Robertson Boulevard bar at around two:30am on Monday morning.
But as deputies questioned Pavilions security guards in the parking lot, they say they saw McSwiggan rip a rearview mirror off an automobile and scratch the paint on an additional vehicle.
Captain Perez also says McSwiggan was noticed attempting to harm himself in the police station holding cell. That’s when he was taken to the hospital.
McSwiggan’s initial Facebook post reads:
Final night was the worst night of my life and I’m really struggling to find the words to talk about it. Right after a single of the most great weekends at VidCon we went out to a gay club to celebrate, and towards the end of the evening I was separated from my pals and beaten up by three guys. The authorities ought to have been there to help and shield me but instead they treated me like a second class citizen. With three broken teeth and six stitches in my forehead, I’ve by no means felt so terrified to be a gay man in the public eye… Right now I do not really feel that I’m in the correct place to speak about this but I will be addressing this totally in the future.
We’ll preserve you posted as more information emerges.
