Surveillance video (49.4 MB .mp4 file) -- Shows the incident from one angle, followed by the same incident from a second angle.

Booking photo: Siale SailiJust after 11 p.m. on Saturday, March 28, 2015, 911 lit up with reports of a disturbance at the Holiday Inn located at 25425 SW 95th Ave. in Wilsonville.

Multiple 911 callers reported of a male throwing several chairs at the Holiday Inn bartender.

According to witnesses, the argument reportedly started over suspect Siale Saili -- 27, of Anaheim, CA -- and his interactions with members of a bachelorette party at the Holiday Inn. After several reported complaints, Mr. Saili was then asked to leave by the bartender.

When the staff asked Mr. Saili to leave, he lashed out.

Surveillance video from the bar -- which is available to media outlets via Dropbox link -- captures (from two different angles) the ensuing acts of violence by Mr. Saili.

In the video, Mr. Saili throws multiple chairs and objects at the bartender and the bar -- destroying glass and severely damaging bar equipment. As clearly seen on the video, the bartender (while on the phone with 911) narrowly evades one chair thrown in her direction.

After causing thousands of dollars of damage to the business, Saili then reportedly fled the scene.

Wilsonville Police located Mr. Saili a short distance away and took him into custody without incident.

Siale Saili was booked into the Clackamas County Jail on charges that include Menacing (two counts), Criminal Mischief, Interfering with Making a Report, Criminal Trespassing and Disorderly Conduct.

A booking photo of Siale Saili is attached. Again, surveillance video (as a 49.4MB .mp4 file) is linked above.

Three Clackamas County cities -- Damascus, Happy Valley, and Wilsonville -- contract with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office to provide municipal police services.
