MOST DAYS, Lt. Ray Evers is doling out information to the media about crime victims.
But the spokesman for the Philadelphia Police Department said he recently had the unusual experience of being a victim himself.
Evers said he was assaulted by several people inside the Princeton, a popular bar on Dune Drive in Avalon, N.J., early on June 17.
"I don't want to make a bigger deal of it than what it is," Evers said Tuesday. "Everything's good."
According to Avalon Police Chief William McCormick, Evers, sporting a puffy eye, flagged down an officer in the early morning hours. McCormick said Evers had gotten into a fight with staff inside the bar.
