Bar owner: Ace slapped a man, not a woman

Survivor Gabon cast member Ace Gordon’s Sunday arrest outside a bar was preceded by an altercation in the bar, but the bar owner says early reports that Ace struck a woman were incorrect.

While the Collier County Sheriff’s Office report cited Sway Lounge staff members who said Ace hit a woman, owner Assaf Basher told the Ft. Myers News-Press that Ace “had an incident with a girl and the guy she was with said something and then he (Gordon) slapped him in the face.”

Basher also says that, while being arrested, Ace “told police, ‘I’m from ‘Survivor.’”

The paper couldn’t reach Ace for comment, and while he logged in to his MySpace page yesterday, he’s posted nothing about the incident.
