It was the drink Kyle Goro was never served that ended up costing him the most.

Goro, 26, of the 1200 block of Lakewood Circle in Naperville, recently pleaded guilty to slapping a bar manager in the face and pushing a bouncer during an April 20 skirmish at Bar Louie, 22 E. Chicago Ave., in downtown Naperville.

Goro was charged under city ordinances with two counts of battery. He pleaded guilty and received three months of court supervision and a $300 fine, which must be paid by Oct. 15.

In addition to his fine, Goro posted $120 bond on the morning of his arrest.

According to court documents, police responded to a fight at the bar about 12:30 a.m. on April 20.

Staff members told police the female manager, who happened to be tending bar, refused to serve Goro because he was "too intoxicated." Goro then reached over the bar and slapped the woman in the face with an open hand.

Goro left the bar briefly and tried to re-enter but was denied due to his apparent level of intoxication.

Naperville Prosecutor Mike DiSanto said Goro then tried to push his way past the bouncers, leading to the second count of battery.

DiSanto said Goro has since written letters of apology to both the bartender and the bouncer and has pledged to never visit the bar again.
