This incident is alleged to have occurred in a Denver, Colorado bar around 2:00 am local time. According to TMZ, Guillard knocked the man out after some pushing and shoving. He was then attacked by a female bystander, who he is also alleged to have hit. Denver police told TMZ that several onlookers confirmed the man in question to be Melvin Guillard.
