FARGO-Fargo police released a video on Wednesday, June 1, that shows some of what occurred during a scuffle at a Fargo bar in April involving Jonathan Scott, one of the stars of the home renovation reality show “Property Brothers.” The footage, part of a police investigation into the incident that resulted in no charges being filed, shows Scott, with some pushing and shoving, being escorted from Dempsey’s Public House, a bar at 226 Broadway. Fargo police confirmed in late April that Scott, a star of the HGTV network, called police early in the morning on April 24 claiming he was assaulted during an incident involving the staff of Dempsey’s. Scott and his twin brother, Drew, were in Fargo at the time to speak at the Eco Chic Design Conference April 23 at Scheels Arena.
City Attorney Erik Johnson said on Tuesday that based on a review of police reports and the video, it was determined there was insufficient evidence to support charges against anyone stemming from the Dempsey’s incident. He said the incident occurred when the bar was closing and a number of people, including Jonathan Scott, became unhappy about having their drinks taken away. Johnson said police reports indicate Scott and others were escorted out of the back of the bar by staff. He said Scott and others went back inside the bar and had to be escorted out again. Johnson said that although physical contact occurred as part of that process, the conduct did not rise to the level of an assault or disorderly conduct. The Scott brothers star in several HGTV shows with the “Property Brothers” theme. Drew is a real estate agent and Jonathan is a contractor.FARGO-Fargo police released a video on Wednesday, June 1, that shows some of what occurred during a scuffle at a Fargo bar in April involving Jonathan Scott, one of the stars of the home renovation reality show “Property Brothers.”The footage, part of a police investigation into the incident that resulted in no charges being filed, shows Scott, with some pushing and shoving, being escorted from Dempsey’s Public House, a bar at 226 Broadway.Fargo police confirmed in late April that Scott, a star of the HGTV network, called police early in the morning on April 24 claiming he was assaulted during an incident involving the staff of Dempsey’s.Scott and his twin brother, Drew, were in Fargo at the time to speak at the Eco Chic Design Conference April 23 at Scheels Arena.
