Today’s #HometownHero is Todd Snyder, the Good Samaritan who needed 6 hours of surgery to wire his mouth shut after being punched in the face for his good deed. While trying to save an intoxicated woman from assault at Jackalope bar in SLC, the scene turned violent as his girlfriend, Victoria Rock, watched.
“She tried coming back out, they pushed her back in and another two guys went in there. That’s when I started banging on the door. They said mind your own business.”
Victoria, who was out with Todd to celebrate his birthday, recounted, “These two males walked past us with this female, they had her by the arms, and they took her into the men’s bathroom.” Todd said of the seemingly intoxicated woman, “She tried coming back out, they pushed her back in and another two guys went in there. That’s when I started banging on the door. They said mind your own business. I said, ‘no, she needs to come out. That’s not okay.’”
He doesn’t remember exactly what happened next, but the scene ended with Todd being thrown out of the lounge with a broken jaw and a swollen eye.
Jackalope Lounge’s manager confirmed that the incident was caught on a surveillance camera but will not be commenting or release footage until a police investigation is conducted.
Todd’s bravery cost him thousands of dollars for surgery and will keep him out of work for 4-6 weeks. If you’d like to donate to this #HometownHero’s fund, you can do so by clicking here.
