Fatty’s Bar and Diner is hosting a charity open mic next Tuesday, July 17 for a member of the Fatty's family, friend and bartender, Shane Denoon (Facebook: Seamus Lestrange.)
Shane was incarcerated last month on June 15th in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on charges related to a motorcycle accident on January 27th of this year.
His family and friends are raising money for his legal defense.
Shane woke up in a hospital and was informed by police a 50 year-old wwoman sustained fatal injuries when his motorbike and her bicycle collided. He has no memory of an accident and suffered head wounds.
Vietnamese news publication Bao Mi reports the accident took place at about 4 am on January 27th on Cong Ly Bridge in Ho Chi Minh City.
He had been cooperating with police for several months before getting jailed in June.
Shane is being held at Chi Hoa Prison in HCMC and is not allowed any visitors. Hiis family's sole communication with him is by way of US Consular officials.
For the next few months, there is an investigation and Shane needs legal representation by a local attorney.
Shane was living in Bangkok for several years before taking a new job in Ho Chi Minh City in January.
