A Naperville man is accused of slapping a bartender in the face after she refused to serve him any more drinks, authorities said Tuesday.

Kyle Francis Goro, 26, was charged under city ordinance early Sunday morning with two counts of battery, Sgt. Bill Davis said.

Officers were called to Bar Louie, 22 E. Chicago Ave. in downtown Naperville, about 12:30 a.m. Sunday to respond to a fight in progress, he said.

Staff members at the bar told police a woman who was bartending denied service to Goro because he was too intoxicated.

"He then became upset and reached over the bar and slapped the bartender in the face with an open hand," Davis said in an email.

Goro left the bar briefly but tried to re-enter. "He was stopped by security and denied entry because of his intoxication level," Davis said. "He then argued with security and tried to push his way past them."

After Goro was charged with two counts of city ordinance battery, he posted an unspecified bond amount and was released. Because Goro has been charged under a city ordinance, Davis said the violation will be handled in court by the Naperville city prosecutor instead of prosecutors from the DuPage County state's attorney's office.
