Larry Chatman just wanted a beer, but his sneakers got in the way.
Chatman, his fiancee, Shannon Brant, and some friends left ComFest on June 23 and ended up in the Arena District that night.But when they tried to get into Park Street Patio, an employee stopped Chatman at the door.
“A bouncer told me I wasn’t allowed in because I had (Air) Jordans on,” said Chatman, 30, who lives in Reynoldsburg and works for the Defense Department. “I kind of laughed it off as a joke, and then (he) stated he was serious.”
He was told that Air Jordan sneakers violated the bar’s dress code, but he saw other patrons wearing sneakers.
