Bouncer at Md. bar charged with assaulting patron

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - A bouncer at a popular bar in College Park has been charged with beating up a customer.

Prince George's County police spokeswoman Julie Parker says 28-year-old Marcus Anthony Plummer, a bouncer at R.J. Bentley's on Route 1, choked, punched and threw the patron to the ground over the weekend. She says the fight began when the customer, a 23-year-old member of the Air Force who is from Wyoming, tried to get back into the bar after being thrown out for tossing his drink on a customer. Parker says Plummer weighs nearly 400 pounds.

Plummer has been charged with first-and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. He was released on $50,000 bond.

Online court records don't list a lawyer for Plummer, and no phone number could immediately be found.
