LAKE CUSHMAN — Mason County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a drunken brawl at “Party Rock” that sent two men to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on Saturday night. 

One of the victims was severely beaten, the other run over by a pickup truck, a sheriff’s spokesman said. No arrests were made, pending the outcome of the investigation.

“It was just a straight-up Donnybrook and there are a lot of witnesses, all with different stories,” Sheriff’s Lt. Travis Adams said. 

The fight involving several people broke out after 5 p.m. Saturday and resulted in one of the men being struck by a hammer.

“It seems he was beat up by a number of people,” Adams said.

Party Rock is a popular drinking spot near the road to Staircase in Olympic National Park.

Looks like I'm the only one who's really willing to talk to police. What's wrong? You guys cowards all of a sudden? Tough guys jumping me but can't stand up and be men and face the law? Today I spoke with the law and will be submitting myself to them for statement as well as face any criminal charges. All I know I was in fear of my life when I fled the attempted murder scene.

Why can't the detectives get a hold of me and get the victims side? Who's willing to take a lie dector test? I am and ill pay for it myself. Lets do one together cowboy and lets see if what you say is the truth.

. . . and the "beat" goes on.

PartyRockVictim

No beat is going on. I never even got a fair exchange. How about before police make a public statement, they have evidence to back up what they say and not pure ignorance and resort to laziness and slander.

@PartyRockVictim, I understand you were beaten but you initiated the fight. The girl you were with came back to get you and another guy and you both approached the other group of males with definite intentions of getting into a physical altercation. Then you ran over a guy with your truck. When you had a gun pulled on you, it was not serious, my boyfriend emptied that guys gun so no bullets were in the chamber, he was just using a scare tactic since you kept coming back for more. If you would have left after the first time you lost the fight that you started, you wouldn't have been so injured, and you probably wouldn't have been so mad to the point where you run over people with your truck. You were the issue and its not your fault that the girl you were with had an issue with those guys because if it wasn't for her, none of this would have happened. She was seeking issues, she came up to my group of friends trying to say we started something as well when none of us have ever seen or talked to her before that. Also she said she was on heroin so I know you all were in the same group and I don't know what you guys do on your free time but everyone at the party rock was drinking except all of the DD's, which was me. So I have a sober eye on this whole situation.You were in the wrong and you kept trying to fight the same people. When you didn't get your way, you came back with a hammer, then you still got beat up, then you left and hit people with your truck and could have killed people.

Your probably one of the many who assaulted me. Your party threw the first punch. As well as attempted to murder me. You already know if I'm on social media lurking, what makes you think I'm not in contact with the news station. Druken brawl is what the sheriff said but doesn't have evidence to even rule the investigation on that set course. If you would like, we can meet at a police station and talk. Oh and the gun was pulled on me before I was assaulted. You just proved many key points in my story. Care to share who you really are? Or you going to continue to provide the police with false allegations which is a crime in this state. Oh you guys also moved me more then 3 feet against my will which is kidnapping aka unlawful imprisonment. I will make sure justice is served. No body should get away with attempted murder.

Don't group me in on this I was an innocent by stander, I didn't hit anyone nor did I hit your truck and I wasn't part of a group that was involved. I just happened to be right in front of the whole thing and everything you're saying is so aggressive, why do you talk like that? No one on here is as angry as you are, and its just showing that you want people to believe your "story" that you came up with in your head, which doesn't match anything that I saw. I hope you continue lurking on social media let me know if you find anything relevant.

PartyRockVictim

Don't slander my lady you pathetic. It says don't lie. So you know the guy with the gun, what's his name? Age? Gun permit? Don't with hold information from the authority.

PartyRockVictim

Lol. Truth will come to light god as my witness. I'm the victim that had a gun pulled on him and jumped twice and my windows on my truck smashed when you guys tried pulling me out for a third round. Myself and my party wasn't intoxicated. I was informed innocent people were hurt, I'm sorry you were hurt and I apologize to their family.

As for me. I'm occurred huge amount of debt plus multiple fractures in my face. Jaw is wired shut , ribs are damaged, left side of my face has lost feeling , eye sight on my left is damaged, broken nose, etc. To everyone who did this to me..... Man up and turn yourself in for attempted murder .

As I was leaving I saw the truck was pulled over and there were cop cars and an ambulance there to most likely treat the guy who was badly beaten. My opinion is, yes he was hurt severely but he was the one who initiated physical harmful violence and kept it going even though he kept getting beaten badly. No one would have kept fighting if he would have just left peacefully but he continued to try and beat these guys since he kept loosing. To me he deserves to be arrested for violence and putting others in harms way and he ran over an innocent by stander that happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. To serve the guy who was ran over, and his family that was there who had to watch the whole thing any justice I believe the guy with the truck is responsible for all of this even though the female he was with initiated the verbal confrontation, he was the one responsible for all the physical violence. Him and the other guy he was with and the female he was with were all extremely intoxicated and continuously were being verbally destructive throughout the entire day. As I stated before I was sober so I was an outside by stander watching the day start from amazing and fun and slowly progressed to 2 people ending up in the hospital for no good reason at all.

Cowboys2. I still am looking forward to speaking to you about this incident. Please call the Mason County Sheriff's Office at 360-427-9670 ext 313 and ask to speak to Corporal Sargent.

HI I was there at the lake and a female had started the argument and had involved 2 of her male friends into it to fight the other males she was arguing with. The females friends went to fight the other group of males and ended up getting hurt even though they started the actual physical fight. The most hurt one was bloody, looked as if his nose was broken, and went back to his truck to get a hammer because he was unhappy about loosing the fight. He struck the guy with the hammer then he and his friend and the female that started the whole thing got in their truck and drove off very fast and angrily, resulting in them deciding to hit an innocent by stander that was in their way. I was there trying to offer my assistance in keeping the guy who was hit by the truck alive but so many people were trying to help and people were very scared. I ended up leaving, but I think about the guy who was hit by the truck and I wonder how his condition is. If you could let me know how he is doing that would be amazing. I know a lot of people at the scene were intoxicated so I hope my sober point of view was helpful.
