QUINCY — A Quincy man turned himself in to the Quincy Police Department on Thursday morning in connection to an incident early Sunday morning at the Harrison Pub.

Officers with the Quincy Police Department and Adams County EMS were dispatched to the bar at 1701 Harrison at approximately 12:30 a.m. Sunday in reference to an ambulance call. Upon arrival, the officers and ambulance personnel found an unconscious male lying on the ground outside of Harrison Pub. 

Officers initially could not determine anything suspicious in nature and cleared the call as a medical incident. The unconscious male, a 45-year-old Quincy man, was transported to Blessing Hospital by ambulance and later diagnosed with a possible life-threatening injury. 

Detectives with the Quincy Police Department followed up Monday with the investigation, including watching video surveillance of the area.  Detectives determined there had been a disturbance between the victim and Bryan S. Paden, 40. Paden and multiple other subjects fled the scene immediately after the disturbance.

Quincy Police Detectives met with a member of the Adams County State’s Attorney’s office on Tuesday and acquired an arrest warrant for Paden for two counts of aggravated battery. Judge Tad Brenner set the bond at $150,000.

Paden surrendered himself at the Adams County Courthouse at 9:30 a.m. Thursday. He now is lodged in the Adams County Jail. His first appearance in Adams County Circuit Court is set for 1:30 p.m. Thursday before Brenner. Nick Rober will be his attorney.

Detectives have been in contact with the victim’s family. As of Thursday morning, the victim in this matter is in a medically induced coma at Blessing Hospital.
