Oscar "Oz" Rodriguez is a karoake host at the Round-Up Saloon in Oak Lawn. He left work at about 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 14 and security footage shows him leaving the bar without any problems, according to his manager Adam Lynn. 

A few hours later, Rodriguez showed up at home where he awoke his roommate who realized Rodriguez had injuries to his head and took him to the hospital, said Lynn. 

"They broke his jaw on both sides and fractured his skull in the back," according to Lynn, who has been visiting with Rodriguez at Parkland Hospital.

Rodriguez is expected to have surgery on Wednesday to repair damage to his jaw, Lynn said.
