After the attack, police witnessed him wandering toward them near the Metro Bar parking lot. Corona said they thought he was drunk because he passed out and was nonresponsive. The officers took him to the county jail where he tried to convince them that he was sober, and only passed out because he was attacked and beaten, he said. When the arresting officers realized they had made a mistake, he was taken to the hospital where he was treated for a concussion, Corona said.
“The doctors say I was lucky no bones are broken. But my collar bone is really bruised, probably from being kicked on the ground, and my wrist is sprained and my face is just really messed up,” Corona said.
Police are investigating the matter, but there are no suspects yet, he said. If anyone saw anything suspicious or has any further information, contact the Salt Lake City Police Department at 801-799-3000. deets here
