Causby put on a mask when asked to but then took it off while in the bar, according to a report filed with the Chattanooga Police Department.
On the Internet, a video went viral of a woman being pulled out of a bar by her hair in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic for not wearing a face mask. The alleged incident took place at the Chattanooga Billiard Club when the victim, known as Bliss Causby, was manhandled by a female bouncer and threw out of the Chattanooga Billiard Club.

In an Instagram post, Causby shared her ordeal, where she said that the worker turned violent and misbehaved with her after she questioned the bouncer after being confronted about not wearing a mask.
In her Instagram post, the woman wrote, “Last weekend I went out to a bar after dinner to play pool with friends... I was standing next to my table drinking a beer and a lady security cop asked me to leave for not having on my mask... I questioned her and she became very aggressive and pushed me..."
She added, "I told her not to put her hands on me that I would leave and this happened.. she threw me down and dragged me across the bar on the floor like an animal..what this video taken by a bystander @barstoolmocs does not show is that she proceeded to punch me in the face and head and kick me..."
Causby continued, “I was kicking at her ankles trying to get loose afraid that she was going to throw me down the stairs.. my guy friend finally pulled me up and took me out. I should’ve called the police but was humiliated and hysterical and just wanted to go home!!..this bitch was out of control and I want her to be held accountable!!.. what can I do??.."
"CBC will not give me their footage without a subpoena and claim to not know the name of the security company?!.. all I know is that the lady’s name is Linda and she is the owner of the security company.. can anyone help?! No one deserves to be treated that way!! #excessiveforce," Causby added.
Several people reacted in the comment section of the post as one user said, “That is so horrible!! Very upsetting!! I would Take action against her! I'm so sorry that happened to you!! Things are out of control.” Another wrote, “How terrible. Do everything you can to find out who did this. Surely the owner of the establishment knows who it is. So sorry!!!”
“Yes get in touch with the media if need be. That is the best way to get things done if other avenues aren't working. I'm saying this from experience,” another added.
A user commented, “Further, this isn't just her being 'out of control', this is criminal assault and malicious wounding because it was intentional and unprovoked. In addition to this footage, did you or a friend take photos of your wounds?”
“There is no active Tennessee state mask mandate per the govt website. Counties or city's determine mandates. Regardless, dragging someone by their hair is never okay. This country burned this summer because of excessive force. That establishment and security guard better lawyer up,” one person pointed out.
Meanwhile, reports said that an investigation into the matter was initiated by the Chattanooga Police Department, although the woman said she was in touch with a lawyer. Neither the bar nor the security guard commented.
