[VIDEO] Democrat State Lawmaker Allegedly Threatens To Shut Down Local Business During Drunk Outburst, “I Can F****** End This Bar”


A Democrat Pennsylvania state legislator was caught on film threatening to shut down a local business in a drunken tirade.

Footage surfaced of Pennsylvania State Rep. Kevin Boyle (D-Philadelphia) allegedly threatening to use his political power to end the bar.

The video, shared by PhillyCrimeUpdate, showed Boyle acting belligerently with the bar’s employees.

“I can f******* end this bar,” Boyle said.

Boyle accused the employees of being military agents and “traitors.”

He also called them “idiots,” “morons,” and “actors.”

Here’s the footage:

A law enforcement source confirmed with NBC10 Boyle was the individual in the video.

NBC10 reports:

People inside the bar repeatedly tell Boyle to leave while claiming he’s intoxicated or on drugs. The video, which is a little more than three minutes in length, doesn’t show what led to the confrontation. It’s also unknown at this time when the incident took place.

NBC10 reached out to Boyle’s office in Philadelphia as well as Gaul & Co. for comment. We have not yet heard back from them. A spokesperson for the Pennsylvania House Democratic Leaders also provided a statement on the incident.

“We are aware of a video circulating on social media. It is very troubling. Rep. Boyle has been open about his personal challenges,” the spokesperson wrote. “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. One of the main reasons we advocate so strongly for mental health access is the reality that challenges can and do happen to anyone, and seeking treatment should be encouraged, not stigmatized.”

In 2021, Boyle was arrested and charged with harassment and violating a protection from abuse order that was filed by his wife.

“It is important to note that Kevin Boyle is not accused of any act of violence. By agreement with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, Kevin is scheduled for a mental health evaluation,” Boyle’s attorney, R. Emmett Madden, told NBC10 in a written statement in reference to the arrest back in 2021. “He intends to follow through with all court, mental health and medical recommendations, including treatment. We are confident that with treatment, Kevin can return to full health, resolve these charges, and continue serving his constituents.”

From the New York Post:

The bar, located in Montogomery County, is part of the 172nd district that Boyle has served since he took office in 2011, along with parts of Philadelphia.

The Pennsylvania House Democratic Leaders said they were aware of the “troubling” video and were “glad” Boyle was seeking help for his “personal challenges.”

After Boyle’s 2021 arrest, he “was removed from his position as House Finance Committee chairman and had his access to the Capitol limited,” the New York Post noted.
