A 20-year-old Lawrence man was arrested for aggravated assault early Sunday morning outside East 23rd Street Roadhouse, 1003 E. 23rd Street.
The incident resulted in no injuries.
The man became confrontational with bar staff after he was ejected from the club and escorted to his vehicle, Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl said. The suspect retrieved a small aluminum baseball bat from his car and made verbal threats toward club staff. The staff then disarmed the man.
Police received the call at 2:55 a.m. and arrived on scene shortly thereafter, preventing any potential violence, Hadl said.
