Police: 1 man dead, another arrested after fight over jukebox music at Las Vegas bar
LAS VEGAS, Nev. - A Las Vegas man is accused of killing another man in a fistfight after arguing with him about jukebox music at a bar.
Police arrested Luis Miguel Chavarin, 31, after the fight happened around 4 a.m. Monday at the Loose Caboose on West Flamingo Road.
Chavarin told officers he was at the tavern with his friend when he started arguing with another man about the music on the jukebox, according to a police report. When the man started swearing at him, "pushing his buttons" and getting close, Chavarin said he feared a "sucker punch" and hit him.
When the victim hit the ground and went unconscious, Chavarin tried to help him, witnesses said. Chavarin told police he didn't intend to seriously hurt the man, and stayed at the scene to take responsibility for the incident, according to the report.
The man was taken to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Clark County coroner's officials have not yet released the man's name or cause of death. Authorities didn't say whether they think the beating or the fall to the ground might have caused his death.
Chavarin was arrested on suspicion of "open murder," which means prosecutors can amend the charges once they have more information.
He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center pending a Wednesday court appearance.
