Pennsylvania State Representative Kevin Boyle, a Democrat representing part of Philadelphia County, is facing scrutiny after a video surfaced on social media showing him allegedly harassing bartenders at a local restaurant.

The incident, which took place at Gaul and Co. Malt House in Rockledge Township, Pa., has sparked an investigation into Boyle's behavior.

In the video, Boyle can be heard arguing with the bartenders and making threats to shut down the bar. "I can end this bar by the way," Boyle is heard saying. "I'll end this bar... The bar is done tomorrow. Do you know who I am? This bar is done!"

Following a 911 call from the bartender, law enforcement officers arrived at the scene around 12:18 a.m. on Thursday. However, Boyle has not been charged with any crime, and there is no evidence of him leaving the premises in a vehicle after the altercation.


The Montgomery County Chief of Police addressed the incident, stating that they are investigating the "threats" made by Boyle in the video. Meanwhile, Pennsylvania House Democratic Leadership released a statement expressing their concern and support for Boyle. "We are aware of the video circulating on social media. It is very troubling," the statement read. "Rep. Boyle has been open about his personal challenges. We are encouraged that our colleague and dear friend is seeking help... Our commitment to delivering mental health services does not stop at the Capitol Steps."


Despite the ongoing investigation, Boyle has yet to issue a public statement regarding the alleged outburst. As the situation unfolds, the focus remains on the repercussions of his actions and the importance of addressing mental health challenges.
