New surveillance footage released by La Sandwicherie in Miami appears to support the restaurant's claim that Kelvin Pena, better known as Brother Nature, "started the entire altercation" that was initially reported as him being jumped.
La Sandwicherie said the incident started when Brother Nature confronted a restaurant patron who had been taking video of him with a female friend. In an interview with Drama Alert, the man who only goes by “D” says he only started recording when he saw Pena acting "drunk" and "belligerent."
D alleges Brother Nature arrived at La Sandwicherie after employees announced last call. Pena allegedly pulled down chairs that were being stowed away, and demanded that he sit at a table, instead of being seated at the bar.
Pena’s confrontational behavior led to the manager asking him to leave. When Brother Nature was informed by his female friend that D was recording him, he approached him about deleting the footage, and even demanded his phone. "He comes right up to me, he gets right in my face, and goes 'Yo, give me your phone right now,'" D recalled. "I laughed at him, put my phone on the table, and ask if he knows who's he's speaking to."
When D refused to hand over his phone, that's when, according to La Sandwicherie, Brother Nature said he wanted to "take it outside."
As Brother Nature leaves La Sandwicherie, he takes out his phone and gestures to D and his cousin. This is what we see in the video below.
D says Brother Nature told him to come outside and fight, and he obliges. Afterwards, D returns to his seat in the restaurant, and as you can see in the surveillance video below, Pena comes in, and starts swinging at his cousin, not D, who claims that during their altercation, Pena ripped off his shirt.
When D joins in again, we only see the clip where Brother Nature is getting kicked and having drinks poured on him.
D says that he was told by someone at La Sandwicherie that when the police arrived, the restaurant filed the altercation as self-defense.
