You Judge: VFW Alleges Violence during Confrontation

Elyria, OH - 19 Action News is committed to getting the story at any cost.

After all, we're honest, fair, everywhere.

So when we got word from a war veteran who said he was kicked out of the Elyria VFW Hall because he told authorities the establishment was violating Ohio's new smoking ban - we sprang into action.

But our investigation quickly turned ugly - when people at the VFW Hall threaten violence and made false claims.

A waitress told police Reporter Jonathan Carter kicked her - even though our videotape clearly shows that is not the case.

And the VFW Commander told Reporter Dan DeRoos that he would come outside and beat him up.
