Do you have to put the picture of The Orange Ale House with this article? It was in the parking lot. Why not put a picture of his Maple Street Residence? Running a small business is tough enough these days without bad press. You do not even suggest that they were in that bar, and if he was, he is breaking the law being under age or having a fake ID.

^^^^^ Great job John Seconded.

I agree - Orange Ale House was not involved please remove this article with their name on it - Game Stop is in same parking lot you did not mention them ?? It's very irresponsible of you to do that.

When I read this headline I assumed the altercation was inside OAH. How misleading. And this happened 3 months ago to boot. I think a letter from the attorney for OAH to Patch is in order.

What does Milford Assult at the Orange Ale House even mean? Why would a Milford cop arrest someone for something that happened in Orange. High School news papers have better articles.

I have to agree, when I came to read this I thought the assault was in the OAH. Many will read only the title and judge, which is not a good thing,

This article is irresponsibly written. As an owner of a small business myself I fully understand what a negative effect this will have on this business. There needs to be another article of retraction and apology.

Thank you for your comments on this police report. The article has been updated to correct the location of the alleged incident. Milford Patch regrets the error and apologizes for any misunderstanding it may have caused.

Ryan, I too agree that you must check the facts twice and then you will only have to print once. I'm a friend of the owner of the OAH and was shocked to see the headline before reading the update. I read that all the comments are saying the same thing. Please in the future verify the facts.

Milford Patch may regret the error but you did not change the headline.
Ryan Sartor (Editor) September 03, 2012 at 09:36 PM
Hi Michael: The headline has been changed. Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

3 months ago !! Why now with all the miss information ??
Mcllc September 04, 2012 at 01:09 AM
It is 09:10 pm and my iPad still says Orange Ale House.
John Pasnau September 04, 2012 at 02:14 AM
And on facebook? It is still OAH there, my guess is far more people see that.
Ryan Sartor (Editor) September 04, 2012 at 02:57 PM
Hi Mcllc, that may be the hyperlink, which cannot be changed. The headline and article have been revised.
Ryan Sartor (Editor) September 04, 2012 at 02:58 PM
Hi John, good point. I have re-posted the link on Facebook with the correct headline and editor's note.
John Pasnau September 04, 2012 at 05:31 PM
Hi Ryan. Nobody is perfect. I respect and admire your willingness to correct this error.
kokopop September 04, 2012 at 07:37 PM
dang, they are beating you up today Ryan....good luck!
C.S. September 04, 2012 at 09:42 PM
Everyone makes a mistake every now and then, Ryan is a good person, and I'm sure there was no ill intention when the article was written. As John Pasnau said he did correct the error. Next topic.
