A beloved San­ta Mon­i­ca bar man­ag­er is dead after a phys­i­cal alter­ca­tion with a cus­tomer on Tues­day night. 

The inci­dent occurred out­side Jameson’s Pub around mid­night when 26-year-old Leonard Hec­tor Kor­pie alleged­ly punched the man­ag­er, who was in his ear­ly 50s, dur­ing a scuf­fle. The uniden­ti­fied man­ag­er lost con­scious­ness and lat­er died at the hos­pi­tal despite CPR and oth­er life­sav­ing measures.

“He was a respect­ed and esteemed mem­ber of our restau­ran­t’s fam­i­ly,” a spokesper­son for Jameson’s Pub told the Sacra­men­to Bee. “We are all deeply sad­dened by his passing.”

Kor­pie and two oth­ers involved in the alter­ca­tion were arrest­ed. Kor­pie faces a mur­der charge and is being held on a $2 mil­lion bail. This trag­ic event serves as a stark reminder of the dev­as­tat­ing con­se­quences of violence.
