Update Nov. 30, 2017: Watch full surveillance video from Barley House incident with YouTube stars
One of the latest videos that has caused a lot of commotion in Cleveland was a video Violet posted claiming they were injured by employees at the Barley House.
Banks said he was choked out by employees and that it happened because an employee tried to grab his girlfriend's butt.
WARNING: Graphic language.
In the video, Banks shows a broken finger claiming, "This isn't a publicity stunt this isn't fake this is the ... real thing. I can't believe this happened to us."
Violet shared pictures on her Snapchat and Instagram accounts of bruises on her eye and lip.
What happened to Banks began when he was in a restricted basement area of the restaurant and was asked to leave and go upstairs, said manager Corey May.
He made fists and feigned fighting to a bouncer, May said while pointing to the surveillance video.
The video shows Banks and his girlfriend, Violet, were guided up the steps into the main dining area. In the video provided by the Barley House, she was riding a bouncer's back aggressively during the altercation in the basement.
Banks was being guided out forcefully, but was walking on his own. Violet and her friends were being held back until he was ejected.
For a time things calmed down outside once the YouTube stars and their friends were removed.
May narrated a video showing the situation had abated.
"This is his girlfriend Alissa and her two friends. This is once again this is her mother thanking our security saying 'Hey, thank you,'" he said, adding Violet's mother patted the bouncer on the shoulder on the video.
Minutes later the cameras from people on West 6th Street came out to capture another fight with Alissa getting in the faces of other customers just trying to leave the restaurant.
There is punching and hair pulling in the surveillance video.
As it goes on, Banks throws a glass at other customers. Later, another confrontation as the camera came out again, there is a struggle and from the shadows Banks attacks again, striking a customer not a bouncer as he boasted.
May said Banks was "Totally cheap shotting him."
May is concerned for his restaurant's reputation and safety after death threats were left on the bar's answering machine.
"I have employees, friends, customers of Barley House because they look like these assailants getting threatened, death threats, disgusting pictures being sent to them. It's absurd, they should be ashamed," he said.
However, Banks was interviewed Tuesday night on DramaAlert and vehemently denied May's statements. Warning: graphic language:
The entire situation is headed to court.
Some of the allegations of the couple include sexual assault, being nearly choked out and other things not seen on the tape and that May denies.
It is very likely a counter suit will be filed as the Barley House feels it was wrongly accused.
Editor's note: It has been suggested by Banks on Twitter that Barley House and WOIO/WUAB have a financial relationship. In June 2015, woio.com posted a cooking segment that was recorded at Barley House. According to sales records, that segment was not a paid segment, and Barley House was chosen by the production crew. In fact, in researching sales records dating back several years, it appears Barley House has never been an advertiser on WOIO or WUAB-TV.
