RACINE, Wis. (AP) — A Racine alderman is jailed on allegations he choked and hit a pregnant employee at the bar he owns.

The Racine County sheriff’s office says 59-year-old Keith Fair was arrested early Sunday at his bar, Place on 6th. He was being held in lieu of $10,650 bond on suspicion of strangulation or suffocation, false imprisonment, battery and disorderly conduct.

He’s accused of assaulting the employee, who was eight weeks pregnant, Friday night.

Sheriff Christopher Schmaling calls it “a brutal attack” and says Fair’s alleged actions “are not only concerning, but alarming.”

Authorities say they impounded a vehicle owned by Fair they believe may have been involved in the incident. Investigators also searched his home and bar.

Phone calls to Fair’s home and bar seeking comment Sunday were not immediately returned.

    On the brighter side.The civil lawsuit will likely bring her an enormous sum of cash! Gov.Walker can just beat the tar out of me and especially bring the Koch bros with him to aid and abet! My bruises would heal up just fine!

    Sounds like this guy’s hormones might be raging just a bit as well. Beating up a pregnant woman, this guy sounds like a real class act. (NOT)

  5. Jake says:

    If she was a fatty, there would be NO distinct EVIDENCE that she was 8 weeks pregnant, therefore, he had no reason to believe that she in fact was pregnant. Incidentally, what is a PREGNANT WOMAN doing being in a BAR, unless she was a designated driver, which the article says NOTHING ABOUT?? Did anybody take a BAC on the pregnant woman?

    1. JamieD says:

      You may need to re-read the article; she was his employee at the bar and there was no mention of either of them being intoxicated. Even if he didn’t know she was pregnant, what’s justification for choking this person?

  6. SnowFire says:

    He’s part of the GOP and they will cover his back because he is one of the special wealthy republicans also known as the almighty, untouchable “JOB CREATERS”!

    Alderman Keith Fair is a black democrat who has worked hard to elect Obama. That is why you don’t see the political party mention in this article. Sorry!
