The charges against Farkas were dropped, as there was "no basis for Farkas' arrest and it was an unlawful arrest." Farkas has brought about a civil suit against officer Const. Paul Zarafonitis, who is also facing an assault charge. Farkas' account of the event is that he was ordered out of the bar, and when he continued taking photographs, the constable yell and swore at him. When Farkas attempted to leave, he claims he was attacked, punched, kicked, and knocked unconscious. Zarkas also states that he was denied medical treatment after being arrested, and suffered from a broken nose, cheekbone, orbital bone and ribs.
