Funeral Held For Metairie Bar Brawl Victim
Friends, family and co-workers gathered to remember a man killed in a Metairie bar fight.
Those close to 40-year-old Adnan Anwar were in Slidell to help bury the husband and father who was attacked and killed inside J.R.`s Sports Bar early Monday morning.
Booked for manslaughter is 37-year-old Aaron Ullrich who investigators say punched Anwar in the head because of a dispute over the availability of a pool table.
Ulrich is being held on a $100,000 bond.
An autopsy confirms Anwar died as the direct result of a blow to the head.
Anwar left behind a wife and 4 children: a 6-year-old, a 4-year-old, and 18-month-old twins.
He worked as a driver for United Cab.
His father says Adnan immigrated to the United States with his wife in 1996 for a better life.
They first lived in New Jersey and came to New Orleans around 2003.
