The Nitro Police Department responded to a 911 call from the casino at 3:13 a.m. because an apparently intoxicated customer was "refusing to cooperate with the casino's management," according to Metro 911 dispatch logs.
Casino supervisors had the customer detained after he declined to leave.
Patrolman Raymond Blake said the officers dispatched to the scene encountered a man who was identified as Holgorsen. Blake said Holgorsen offered no resistance.
"We got up there and spoke to the male and said, 'Hey, they want you to leave,' " Blake said. "He complied, walked out, sat out on a bench, waited for the taxi, and when the taxi arrived, he got in and left."
Blake didn't know what prompted the call from the casino. Repeated messages left at the casino have not been returned, including those to General Manager Robert Lagg, to whom all calls have been referred.
Sources told the Daily Mail Holgorsen and those he was with grew too loud and rowdy for the casino's comfort and were asked to control themselves before things escalated.
Holgorsen has since apologized for the incident.
