Houston, Texas – Jared David Avila, 22, of Rosenberg has been charged with one misdemeanor count for assault with bodily injury for sucker punching Oscar De La Rosa on May 13 outside a Houston suburban Montrose gay night club called the Blur at 710 Pacific. It took police several months to identify Avila and up to four months to arrest him in late September. Avila posted $5,000 bail and was released pending a Harris County Criminal Court hearing.
Avila in May wanted to take a photo with De La Rosa inside the popular gay bar, but De La Rosa felt uncomfortable with Avila and refused. Avila began to make scene inside and was kicked out of the bar.
When De La Rosa and his driver left around 1:30 a.m. from Blur, Avila stepped out from some the bushes and sucker-punched De La Rosa and his driver. De La Rosa was injured with face lacerations, an injured right eye and lost two front teeth. De La Rosa was hospitalized and had to cancel a concert tour with La Mafia group for several months until he recovered. His driver suffered minor injuries.
