HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) -

Henderson Police are investigating a death at the Double Dukes Saloon.

According to Henderson Police, Double Dukes Saloon employees removed 34-year-old Adam Hogan, of Uniontown, Kentucky, from the bar area Saturday night.

A witness tells 14 News the incident started with a miscommunication, "He went to the bartender and said this is the worst Jager bomb I've ever had. The bartender told him it wasn't a Jager bomb."

The witness say Adam Hogan then slammed his drink down on the bar, splashing the female bartender. 

Then, the witness says, the employees at Double Dukes got involved, "One of the security guards hit Adam on the back of the head with a metal baton to subdue him.  They were on top of him kneeing him, and there were like three of four guys on top of him."

Police say Hogan was pronounced dead at Methodist Hospital.

An autopsy was conducted but the medical examiner has not released an exact cause of death. More tests are being conducted.

Police say the outcome of the autopsy will determine if any charges will be filed.
