The incident took place around 4:30 a.m. March 25 in the parking lot of Parkway Tavern, 9820 W. Flamingo Road, near South Grand Canyon Drive.

Defense attorney William B. Terry, who sought his client’s release, said Bandy was the victim of this incident. He said his client was attacked by a group of drunk people who were already fighting when Bandy arrived.

Bandy also turned himself in once he knew he was wanted from media coverage of incident.

Bandy is scheduled to return to court at 9:30 a.m. June 15.
