Two men were arrested and charged with felony mob action early Saturday morning. The Beer Barrel Pub on Montclaire Avenue in Godfrey was the site of an alleged beat-down of a patron who called the Madison County Sheriff's Department following the incident. Aside from some facial swelling and bruising, it is not believed the 39-year-old male victim suffered any other serious injuries.
Captain Mike Dixon of the Madison County Sheriff's Department says it is his understanding the victim was asked to leave before the altercation.
Charged are 26-year-old Ryan R. Duckett (pictured, top) of the 300 block of N. Main Street in Brighton and 49-year-old Dennis M. McGiffen (pictured, bottom) of the 100 block of Boker Street in Brighton. Bond was set at $20,000 for each man, and both bonded out later that day. Dixon says if anyone else can be positively identified from the altercation, they could also be charged.
