Bar fight in Ocean Springs lands 3 behind bars | Crime
Three men were arrested Thursday around 2:35 a.m. after a bar fight outside of an Ocean Springs bar, according to Ocean Springs police.
Captain William Jackson said the fight started inside Castaways Bar and Grill.
Levender Whittle Jr., 45, of Vancleave and Dylan C. Waldrep, 23, of Gautier reportedly started arguing when they headed outside and began pushing and shoving one another.
Graham B. Waldrep, 26, who is Dylan’s brother, joined in the fight to help out, Jackson said.
Jackson said, that’s when Whittle went to his vehicle and grabbed his .22 caliber rifle. Jackson said Whittle used the rifle to hit Dylan in the face.
Once EMT’s from Acadian arrived, Dylan refused treatment. He reportedly suffered swelling and cuts above his left eye.
All three men were transported to Ocean Springs jail and each face charges of public intoxication. All three have been released after posting bail.
This incident is still under investigation with other charges pending.
