PAPILLION, Neb. (KMTV) — The former owner of popular metro-area sports bars was convicted of felony tampering and misdemeanor assault from a 2021 incident in a different bar.

Court documents say Chad McMahon tackled a man outside of another sports bar last year in Sarpy County, causing broken ribs.

McMahon faces up to three years in prison and a maximum fine of $11,000.

He was forced to sell his chain of The Good Life bars last year after an incident in which minors were served on Christmas night 2020, and one later got into a car accident.

McMahon still has a pending case from that incident as he’s charged with obstructing police.

3 News Now reporting from that time also indicated minors consistently drank alcohol at The Good Life bars when McMahon was in charge.
