The victim was shot in his right thigh, but only received minor injuries, because the bullet first struck his cell phone in his pocket, said Captain Eschweiler.

Police added Stokes also punched a man in the face at the bar.

Both victims were treated at MetroHealth Medical Center.

Stokes is charged with two counts of felonious assault.
