Bar Fight Led To Bar Discipline, Reinstatement

The South Carolina Supreme Court has ordered the reinstatement of an attorney who had been suspended for the following conduct:

On March 22, 2009, respondent self-reported his arrest for Aggravated Battery to ODC [Office of Disciplinary Counsel].  The arrest occurred as a result of a bar fight between respondent and three other individuals on March 15, 2009, in Savannah, Georgia, during which one of the other individuals  was struck in the head and/or face with a beer bottle.  Respondent represented that alcohol was involved in the incident and independently sought treatment for alcohol abuse and anger management.
