A Pennsylvania state representative is under scrutiny after video was posted to social media seeming to show him harassing bartenders at a local restaurant.

State Rep. Kevin Boyle, a Democrat representing part of Philadelphia County, is under investigation after a video taken at Gaul and Co. Malt House in Rockledge Township, Pa., appeared to show him arguing with bartenders and threatening to shut down the bar.

“I can end this bar by the way,” the subject identified as Boyle said in the video posted to social media. “I’ll end this bar.”

“This bar is done. Do you know who I am?” he continued. “The bar is done tomorrow. Do you know who I am? This bar is done!”

“We are aware of video circulating on social media. It is very troubling. Rep. Boyle has been open about his personal challenges. We are encouraged that our colleague and dear friend is seeking help,” the statement said. According to local outlets, the statement added, “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.”
