Ohio cops: Heckled karaoke singer socks 3 in face

Police say a karaoke singer who was booed soon after taking the stage at an Ohio tavern punched three people in the face when bartenders tried to kick him out.

Authorities in Sandusky say the performance ended with the arrest of 20-year-old Isaiah Johnson on charges of disorderly conduct, assault and underage consumption.

Johnson took the stage Tuesday night and fellow patrons quickly began jeering at him. A police report obtained by the Sandusky Register (http://bit.ly/rHRUdJ) says Johnson slammed down the microphone and began swinging when bouncers and other patrons tried to get him to leave the bar.

Police say he socked three people in the face.

Johnson was released Thursday from the county jail. No phone listing was available for him in the Sandusky area.
