According to state officials, McIntyre had been at a bar earlier in the evening with two women. The three became unhappy when they learned bar was closing for the night and one of the women urinated on the floor, according to reports. The bartender called the police and followed them back to an apartment, where he was allegedly punched in the nose.

McIntyre pleaded guilty the following May to a charge of misdemeanor battery.

Separately, McIntyre was stopped in February 2018 for speeding and arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. It was his third such arrest.
