Eric Lamar McCoy, 27, of 725 Buttonwood St., was taken into custody after he allegedly fled from police who were attempting to make contact with him and take him into custody early Sunday morning.
Police said McCoy was inside the Pumptown Tavern getting a lap dance when he was asked to leave after he touched a dancer of her buttocks, according to the arrest affidavit filed by Patrolman James Wyatt. “McCoy argued about having to leave the bar and was escorted from the bar into the parking lot,” where he allegedly displayed a black, semi-automatic handgun at the two men who escorted him outside.
