Manhunt underway for driver accused of ramming car into bar, injuring 3 people

LOVELAND, OH (FOX 19) - Police are searching for a man they said crashed into a bar in Loveland, injuring three people.

Police said Bradley Pauley, who is now charged with aggravated assault, drove his vehicle into the south side of Zappz Bar.

"Pauley did cause physical harm to another by means of a deadly weapon," the court record states.

Pauley was injured during the incident and taken by Air Care to the hospital. Police said he was released before they could get a warrant for his arrest.

Andrew Attinger, 33, a patron of the bar that night, was also taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Ty Boeppler has worked at Zappz for more than seven years and said Pauley became belligerent when he was asked to leave the bar because of his bad behavior.

"Once he was out the door he backed his car up to the area over there so he could get a running start. Next thing you know he was just inside the bar," he said.

A GoFundMe has been set up for Attinger, who suffered multiple injuries including a fractured ankle, fibula, and tibia, four broken ribs, a punctured lung, multiple broken vertebrae, a severely broken pelvis, and many external lacerations.

"It's insane you know... I never could have imagined anything like this ever happening and I just feel for everyone that was here and just how traumatic of an event that must have been," Boeppler said.

"Being an innocent bystander, Andy had no reason to be involved in this senseless act of violence. All donations received will directly benefit Andy and his recovery process," the page reads.

Doctor's expect Attinger to make a full recovery, but it will take some time. Friends are buying ramps to install at his house for when he's ready to come home.

Loveland police said they are keeping an eye on Pauley's home in nearby Miami Township.
