On Friday March 29th, 2019 at about 1 AM, a Worcester Police officer was working an off-duty assignment at District Bar and Nightclub at 109 Water St. The officer was flagged down for a disturbance on the dance floor, in which several people were spraying beer on other patrons and were being asked to leave by security staff. The officer assisted the staff in removing the unruly patrons. One of the males causing the disturbance, Concepcion Rodriguez, thirty-two-years-old of 5 Lucian St, began to taunt the staff and refuse to leave. When the officer walked toward him, Mr. Rodriguez shoved the officer backward and took a boxer’s stance.
