(Maryville Daily Forum) – Three people were taken into custody Thursday night following an incident at Carson’s Sports Grille, 310 N. Main St., during which one of the restaurant’s owners, Carson Riedel, was injured.
Riedel, the husband of Maryville Mayor Renee Riedel, who is also one of the restaurant’s owners, reportedly suffered a shoulder injury and was treated and released from St. Francis Hospital in Maryville.
Held at the Nodaway County jail in lieu of bond were Jarrett Richard McLain, 25, Hartford Wisconsin; Tyler Thomas Larson, 26, Junction City, Oregon; and Mitch Allen Phillips, 27, Spokane, Washington.
Maryville Public Safety Director Keith Wood said Friday that other Carson’s employees suffered superficial injuries as well, but that no one else was hospitalized.
Wood said the incident began shortly before 6:30 p.m. when several customers, reportedly construction workers from the Kansas City Power & Light substation being built south of Maryville, were asked by restaurant staff to leave the premises after uttering profanities and exhibiting other kinds of disruptive behavior.
One of the men, Wood said, apparently shoved Riedel as he and a bartender were escorting the group toward the front exit, and the episode quickly escalated into a fight that spilled outside onto the sidewalk.
Police responded immediately following a 911 call from the restaurant.
Wood said three Maryville officers dispatched to the scene were assisted by personnel from the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
He said the investigation is ongoing, and that a fourth arrest is possible.
Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice filed felony burglary and assault charges Friday against all three suspects, burglary in this instance being defined as “remaining unlawfully in a building … for the purpose of committing an assault therein.”
According to a probable cause statement filed by police, the suspects “remained unlawfully” inside the restaurant “after being told multiple times to leave by the owner.”
