UPDATE: August 30 at 1:30 p.m.

Police have obtained an arrest warrant for Everett Parker, the man suspected of smashing a beer bottle in a man’s face at the Fry Street Tavern on Avenue A on Saturday, August 19.

According to the warrant, Parker is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against Shane Conway. After the incident, Conway was transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. At the time Conway did not know the person who assaulted him. Conway suffered lacerations to his face.

Bryan Cose, public information officer for the Denton Police Department, said the suspect surrendered himself to police on Tuesday, August 30 around 8:15 a.m.

Mark Elliston, who claimed he he had been hired to represent Parker, had been in contact with the investigator for the case. He said Parker would surrender himself to the police when they obtained the arrest warrant, the warrant states.

Cose said the victim has since been released from the hospital.

According to Denton Police Department public information officer Shane Kizer, the altercation between the suspect and the other man was unprovoked. Several witnesses, including the victim, claimed this as well.

Surveillance camera footage from the bar showed the suspect to be a male with a beard who was wearing a t-shirt with an American flag on the left sleeve and dark pants.

In the warrant, several witnesses came forward and described what they saw at the bar that night

“Witnesses weren’t the problem,” Cose said. “What we were really seeking was someone who could identify the person.”
