GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A man is dead after a fight and alleged assault near the B.O.B. bar.

The fight occurred on Saturday morning just after 1 a.m. Grand Rapids police officers were called to the B.O.B. parking lot because of the fight, but everyone was gone when they got there.

Witnesses say there was a verbal fight on the sidewalk north of the B.O.B. where punches were thrown, and a group of people chased a man into that parking lot just north of the bar. Security guards helped break up the fight and everyone left.

Then around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, officers were called to a house in Cascade Township where a man said he was having medical issues and had been in a fight at the B.O.B. earlier in the morning. He was taken to the hospital where he later died. The cause of his death is unknown and is still being investigated.

If you have any information on this incident, you’re being asked to call Grand Rapids Police at 1-616-456-3604 or Silent Observer at 1-616-774-2345.
