Richmond, IN
Man stabbed at bar
39-year-old suspect arrested after incident at Bertie's Music Bar

A stabbing at a downtown bar early Sunday sent one Richmond man to the hospital and landed another in jail on a felony battery charge.

Donald D. Burgan

Donald D. Burgan, 39, of 713 S. 13th St. in Richmond was arrested on preliminary charges of aggravated battery (a Class B felony) and public intoxication (a Class B misdemeanor).

Police claim Burgan stabbed 46-year-old Kem Miller of Richmond after Burgan and a group of acquaintances had an altercation with a bouncer inside Bertie's Music Bar, 1129 E. Main St.

"It was around closing time, and there was some kind of disagreement inside the bar involving the suspect, another male and two females and a bouncer at the door," Richmond Police Department Lt. Bryan Ervin said Monday. "The suspect was asked to leave, and then things moved to the door and spilled out the doorway onto the steps, and the suspect stabbed the victim somewhere during that time. The victim suffered lacerations, but he was treated and released from (Reid Hospital)."

Burgan was in the Wayne County Jail on Monday on a $25,000 surety bond for the felony count and a $255 cash bond for the misdemeanor charge.

A Class B felony conviction carries a sentence range of six to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
