Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Alberto El Patron was sued earlier this year for allegedly injuring a man during a brawl at a karaoke bar — but Alberto claims he was the victim and the guy should pay up.
The incident took place in November 2016 at a Texas bar and involved a man named Alex Pardo. According to court documents obtained by The Sheet, filed earlier this year, Pardo claims:
“While returning to his table from the restroom, Plaintiff noticed the Defendant, JOSE ALBERTO RODRIGUEZ, flashing his rear end to the other patrons in the establishment. Upon returning to his seat, which was close in proximity to that of the Defendant’s, an altercation broke out and the Defendant and the individuals that were present with the Defendant began to assault the Plaintiff, ALEX PARDO. As a result, Plaintiff had to receive immediate medical attention and was transported to the hospital by means of EMS for further examination.”
Alberto, however, is telling a different story in the response his lawyer filed in April.
Patron claims someone in Pardo’s group — a 19-year-old woman whose Twitter handle @Pray4TheRealAss was included in the allegations — approached his female companion asking for a picture. The companion, presumably Paige who he was dating at the time, declined … but agreed to snap one on the way out.
Moments later, the companion was approached by more people in the group who said it was owed to their friend and things began to escalate. According to the documents:
“[Alberto] attempted at this time to resolve the issue without conflict and while he did exchange words with the people celebrating with the 19-year-old Patricia at an adult establishment it the Counter-Defendant Alex Pardo who threw a glass at the Counter-Plaintiff’s head causing severe injury, including multiple lacerations. The entire group with the Counter-Defendant began a huge melee and the entire establishment was in a brawl. Counter-Plaintiff slowly rose to his feet only to be rushed again by the Counter-Defendant. The Counter-Plaintiff immediately protected himself and defended against the Counter-Defendant as it was necessary to protect himself and his companions against the Counter-Defendant’s use of unlawful force.”
Alberto claims he had to receive medical attention for the lacerations to his head and a concussion.
After hashing it out in court for months, Pardo’s lawyer bailed. Now, Patron’s lawyer has filed a motion for default judgement in his favor because the deadline for Alex to file certain documents has passed.
Alberto wants Pardo to pay $5,000 for his “pain and suffering,” as well as additional legal fees.
