State senator's leg broken in bizarre attack in restaurant bathroom
KETV used the phrase "claimed he was assaulted" in its YouTube headline.
A police spokeswoman said she couldn't "really think of anything that would lead up to this [attack]."
The restaurant, Blatt Beer & Table, owned by the Flagship Restaurant Group, strongly insinuated that Senator Harr was lying about the circumstances which led to a hospitalization and two broken bones in his left leg.
Blatt Beer & Table is across the street from the south facade of TD Ameritrade Park in downtown Omaha, where the College World Series is played. "Blatt" refers to Rosenblatt Stadium, the Omaha CWS venue for decades preceding the construction of TD Ameritrade Park.
Sen. Harr, a Democrat, is progressive and votes to support women's and LGBT rights legislation.
