ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- Rochester police are investigating an incident at a Rochester bar that sent one man to the hospital.

Around midnight Friday, emergency responders arrived at the Wicked Moose to find a 31-year-old male outside having difficulty breathing.

Police were told the man had been drinking heavily and when he was asked to leave the bar, he went outside and got into an argument with an off duty employee.

A bouncer came out to see what the commotion was, and took the man to the ground, scraping the intoxicated man's head on the pavement.

He was taken to Saint Marys Hospital and is listed in fair condition.

Rochester police are investigating whether the case is self defense or assault.
