Jonathan Scott claimed a bouncer at a bar assaulted him, but can exclusively reveal that his claims weren't completely true!

Scott, 38, visited Dempsey's Public House in North Dakota last April. He called the local police to report an assault after he was placed in a chokehold — but he and his friends fudged some of the details!

"Scott said that he was sitting in a booth at Dempsey's at closing time, when a bouncer that he described to me as being a white male with short brown hair came up to him and his friends and said that they had to leave," an officer wrote in the police report obtained by Radar.

"Scott said he stood up from the booth and the bouncer immediately knocked the glass out of his hand and started to push him."

"Scott said while he was being pushed towards the back of the bar, his girlfriend, redacted, was being pushed towards the front of the bar," the report continued. "Scott said he noticed that his girlfriend was gone, so he turned around to try and find her when a bouncer from behind him put him in a 'choke hold' and drug him out the back of the bar."

Meanwhile, a bouncer claimed that Scott attacked him — and officers requested the court to "please consider charged of disorderly conduct on Scott."


However, Scott claimed that he was targeted for his HGTV celebrity status, and the friends he was with corroborated his story. They claimed they saw the incident happen, and identified his attacker.

But, the officers were able to obtain surveillance footage from the bar that disproved their story!

The video — also obtained by Radar — showed that one of his friends was "escorted out of the bar before the incident with Scott" took place. The bouncer they identified was also on the opposite side of the group when the chokehold took place.

"After reviewing the video, redacted couldn't have seen Scott being placed in a choke hold," the officer reported. "At the time this occurred, they had already been escorted towards the front of the establishment."

Regardless, charges were never filed against the reality TV star due to a lack of evidence.
