Dormont Man Arrested on Drug, Conduct Charges

Dormont blotter, Dec. 28 to Jan. 4.

A man was arrested on numerous charges after he first called the police for assistance, then allegedly refused to let them help. 

According to the report by Dormont police, Austin Deaver, 27, of Dormont called police at 12:15 a.m. on Jan. 1 and reported that his girlfriend was unconscious at his apartment in the 3200 block of West Liberty Avenue and needed help.

Police said when they arrived at the apartment, they found a bong-type device. At that point, according to the police report, Deaver told the police to leave the apartment and attempted to physically stop the police from getting to the woman.

Deaver was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, possession of drug paraphernalia, and obstructing administration of law enforcement. He was held at the Dormont police station, and was later released on bond.

Jamison's in the news again. Let's see...if you do a search on the Patch on Jamison's you'll see a lot of police activity there. The common denominator? The bartender. Either over-serving patrons or arguing with them. Let's get rid of the real nuisance here.

We go to Jamison's often and don't have any issues. I'd like for you to specify which bartender you are referring to?

I've been to Jamison's and I was not impressed. There was a guy walking around with a lizard on his shoulder! The food was so-so. I'm not going back. What could have been a good establishment turned into another dive bar.

How are you not impressed when you see a guy walking around with a lizard on his shoulder?!?

Steph--I've only been in there once and it was not a pleasant experience. No idea what the bartender's name was--he never properly introduced himself. For lack of a better name, we'll call him Mr. Friendly. Blondish hair, stocky build, rather surly from what I remember. A lizard would have been more pleasant than that. Let's just say if you click on the name Jamison's in the Patch, you will see four police blotters from the last five months that involve a bartender from Jamison's either arguing with patrons or over-serving customers. I made the connection that it must be Mr. Friendly. Daniel B--Party on. Just beware of Mr. Friendly.

Hmmm not sure who that would be. How long ago was this? I'm sorry you had a bad experience though. I know the owner and his wife, and they definitely treat their regulars well. I'd rank it as a bar inbetween Slapshots and Cains, so you definitely get a mixed crowd that can stir things up. We just mind our own business, but I understand where you are coming from. I think it's a certain group of people that frequent around Dormont that are the real issue.
