Danville police Sgt. Troy Craig said that Thomas Keller, 39, of San Ramon, clenched his two fists and punched the bouncer when he was denied re-entry to Elliott's near midnight, Friday, Dec. 29, according to the police report. Keller was unable to control himself due to his intoxication, Craig said.
The 28-year-old bouncer is 6-foot-2 and weighs 280 pounds, while Keller is 5-feet-2 and weighs 140 pounds, reported Craig.
After being punched, the bouncer took Keller to the ground and held him until the police came, according to the report.
"It was a light restraint," Craig said.
He added that staff members at Elliott's saw the San Ramon man nearly falling to the ground several times.
He was taken to the Martinez Detention Facility.
