Instagram Captures Dirty Blondes' Bouncers Beating Patron

instagram_vid_blondies.jpg
What happens when you mix extremely cheap booze, overly aggressive bouncers, and the hot, late summer sun beating down on the Fort Lauderdale Beach boardwalk?

If you've ever been to Dirty Blondes, chances are you've personally witnessed things teeter on the brink of disaster at least once. The quintessential beach dive, home to such greats as the Bar Olympics and $2 domestic drafts, has seen its fair share of inebriated patrons taking things just a step too far.

But this Instagram video posted by user keelan_lftm_dumont yesterday afternoon catches the venue's bouncers beating a patron -- a routine bout of daytime drinking gone violent.

Note:The original video posted by user keelan_lftm_dumont was removed from Instagram. An identical clip has been uploaded to YouTube (see above).

Here's a comment from Mary Ann Crespo, a friend of the patrons involved in the confrontation, giving her explanation of what went down via Facebook:

"This is a video of my friend Stephanie & her boyfriend, Alex. They were at Blondies yesterday, got a drink they didn't like, asked for a new one (offering to pay for both) & then got verbally attacked by the bartender. When they asked the security guys at the door for the manager, this is what happened! I hope they sue Blondies and the employees get arrested! If I lived in Florida, Blondies would never get a penny from me ever again! This is horrible & disgusting. Please help them & share this video. It could've happened to anyone of you out for your Sunday Funday."

According to sources, when the alleged victim, Alexander Coelho, returned to the scene to try to explain to the cops how he had been treated by the Dirty Blondes security guards, Coelho was arrested on two charges, battery on an officer and disorderly conduct. Friends of Coelho say he and another victim in the incident are "both nice and not the type of kids to start problems with bouncers."

When contacted regarding the incident, Dirty Blondes management declined comment.

LOL I don't get why this was blown out of proportion. 1st off the bartender should have just made them a new round. (I was there). 2nd off the security should not have got involved until they were actually needed AND 3rd off i dont get why the security had got so bashed on (i dont not agree on the force and the attack was uncalled for) but they were doing there job. everyone is acting like they never heard of a bouncer over reacting. and also why did they bash ALL the bouncers. when the ONE bouncer did most of the inappropriate force. when this happened at revolution live to a kid (witch i witnessed as well) this was not an issue the kid was like 17 or 18 was dragged out by security and then ransacked than when the kid finally got away secrity grabbed him again and 4 of the bouncers and slammed his head on the side walk. the officer than proceeded to help them pretty much beat this kid up to the point where people in the line had to step in. My point being is why do we take the same situations and make a big deal only out of certain ones. I bet none of yuou have even heard of that kid. I feel bad for the guy i really do but he was a grown man. and should have just left when asked to. 

POINT BEING don't mess or mouth off bouncers....they're  just bullies from school who didn't wanna stop bullying people. They like to pick on people that's why there bouncers. or they failed at becoming a cop.(not ALL but most.)

The city, the establishment and the so called bouncers will all be a lil bit poorer when this all over with.  No excuse for this at all.  Love how they weren't man enough to assault these two like real men do.  What fing cowards.  

And where is the outrage over Black on White violence.  Something must be done, we are oppressed! .  Oh that thats right we don't have a mouthpiece to fire up the masses, we evolved past the need for that.

We need EVERYONES help!

Facebook has banned the page Admins for 12 hrs. This is not a time we can afford to stop reporting the updates to the situation. PLEASE go to the Facebook page and let the fans know we're not gone. We WILL RETURN in full force as soon as Facebook lets us back in.

We've filed a request for review with Facebook and may get back in sooner than 12 hrs.

We believe this may be due to an attack from people who want us silenced. By "flagging" our content they MAY have been able to spark and automated ban from us posting by Facebook.

Keep going, SHARE MORE THAN EVER. Don't let this die!

Black on white crime. Anyone Identifiied the gang bangers disguised as bouncers? Cops protecting bouncers? No effin surprise there. This is what happens when "off duty cops" get hired as security. No way will they back the customer, or else they might not get the gig down the road.

That's what's wrong with ppl these days get in a fight and pull a gun smh sad how ppl think these days can't take a beating all they had to do was walk away there are plenty of other bars to go to on the beach. What did he think they would let him back in if he yelled loud enough.

Happened to me!!! I'm a  53 yr old man. I was confronted by a half dozen men at bar, turned to ask what their problem was, got sucker punched, next thing I know I am being lifted up and choked out by bouncer,  dragged from front bar to back door practically out on my feet. Son was returning from mens room not even involved was grabbed and choked by another bouncer and thrown out front door. police officer was walking towards me and I was told I should have been in my Hotel room and this wouldn't have happened. I tried filing police report for 3 days with no luck, called report in and went back to my hometown with case number I was given. I contacted a Lawyer in Ft Lauderdale and gave him all the info. I was told all videos were erased in Dirty Blondes and there was nothing I could do. I hope you nail these Scumbags!!!Bouncers are supposed to diffuse not escalate!!!!! I understand that this is normal behavior in this bar..GOOD LUCK

So if these guys that got beat by the bouncers, were armed (legally) could they have shot these bitch ass bouncers and legally got away with it. We are in florida.

Wow. A scene right out of the trashy 80s beach era. The only thing missing are some coke whores and Tony Montana with a ton of gold chains on watching Porky's.

The old Florida bouncer Neanderthal hasn't hasn't evolved much.

Blondies shut down its facebook page for the second time in two days. Wonder what's going on at the facebook pages of its sister bars, Exit 66 and Spazio (same owners).

Florida has a problem with over aggressive bouncers and police that have their backs. "The customer is always at fault" in these situations.

been going to blondies for years. the bouncers aren't the most talkative but they have all been friendly and respectful. i've seen plenty of fights there and the drunk patron always deserved to get kicked out. 

i've stopped going not because of the bouncers or friendly bartenders but because it has become filled with the plague that is sofl trash. one can only hope the steroids, drugs, and tattoo ink renders many of them infertile.

The video is evidence of felonious assault with intent to maim.


The bouncers should be incarcerated immediately as they are a danger to the community.

I wouldn't even let the law handle this!  I would find that f..king ahole and get some huge guys to kick that son of a bitch in the head!!! The bouncers are like gorillas uneducated animals!!! What a sucker fight!! That is when you know the bouncers are out of control.  Kicking in the head what an animal!!!!!

@be.you.tiful.forever Not all bouncers are bullies.  When force is called for, thats when force is applied.  I and most of my friends work as bouncers from time to time and if your just being a drunken idiot, we tend to take that in stride and get you on your way, most of the time with a bottle of water and a cab ride.  But, if you start problems, yes we will be tossing you out on your ass.

This being said, what happened at this bar in particular was excessive.

@ebailey75057 So much evolution.. yet still an arrogant bigot.. you're no better for implying that an entire race of people is less "evolved" than you.. either way you have your own mouth pieces, they're called politicians..

@erikorge3 not if the patron had had any alcohol. you lose your right to conceal carry as soon as alcohol is involved.

Though they do resemble gorillas aesthetically, gorillas are actually more  peaceful and gentle than their kind. They're more like chimps.
