Professional boxer and mixed martial artist Conor McGregor is no stranger to controversy, but a recent incident captured by a security camera in a Dublin pub highlights the importance of having high quality surveillance systems in place at bars and restaurants. Video footage shows a man alleged to be the Ultimate Fighting Championship star apparently punching an elderly man in the face for allegedly refusing to drink McGregor’s personally branded whiskey.
Because the pub had a surveillance system in place providing high quality video recording of the bar area, an assault that may have otherwise become a messy legal case involving conflicting witness accounts now clearly shows what happened. This incident perfectly illustrates the benefits of following our suggestions on what to look for in a surveillance system in order to protect both the establishment and its patrons. Incidents such as this can happen in the blink of an eye, and with capable surveillance and security cameras more affordable than ever, no business should be caught off guard.
