A witness said Grant was the aggressor inside the Undertow Bar and caused security to move people outside to the alley. In the video, police say Grant can be seen standing over the female victim who had been pushed to her knees. They say Grant then hit the woman, knocking her unconscious.

Court documents say there is no footage to suggest the woman was involved in the altercation before she was struck and posed no threat to Grant. 

When asked why he hit the woman, Grant said he did not know if he actually connected with the blow and stated he was very intoxicated at the time.   

Police say they have identified six suspects and two victims at the scene but have not made any arrests.
