OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — In the continuing story of former Good Life Bar owner Chad McMahon, McMahon has another charge, this one from the city, for alleged obstruction of a police investigation.
Police said that he refused to give video of the Christmas night in which minors allegedly got drunk and one later crashed.
When police got a warrant, the video was apparently deleted.
McMahon is also facing three felony charges in Sarpy County.

Police told the Omaha City Council in May, that when they asked McMahon for video tapes, McMahon refused, and they showed body cam video of McMahon saying he feared incriminating himself.— Jon Kipper (@jonnykip21) August 17, 2021
When OPD got a warrant for the tapes, they found footage from that night deleted.
City Attorney Matt Kuhse said at that council meeting, which was evaluating McMahon’s liquor license, that he planned to charge McMahon with obstruction.— Jon Kipper (@jonnykip21) August 17, 2021
Not sure why it took so long, and if they considered other charges.
McMahon sold his bar 2 months after the council meeting.
McMahon also has three felony charges in Sarpy County: a 1st-degree assault allegation & alleged witness tampering stemming from the assault charge.— Jon Kipper (@jonnykip21) August 17, 2021
