    Man punched, pepper sprayed after bar fight

    By Breaking News Staff

    DAYTON —

    A man is in jail today after police say he assaulted a security guard at a local bar, in a drunken fit.

    Robert Atkinson, 41, was arrested at Waldorf Lodge #76, 311 S. Paul Laurence Dunbar Street, at 11:17 p.m. Friday.

    A Dayton police report states Atkinson wrestled with a security guard, eventually ripping his uniform and attempting to punch him.

    The guard told officers he approached Atkinson after a female patron said he had stolen her purse. When he became combative, the guard punched Atkinson in the face and put him in handcuffs until police arrived.

    Atkinson was intoxicated, according to officers.

    Montgomery County Sheriff's deputies used pepper spray to incapacitate Atkinson, who continued to resist them at Montgomery County Jail.

    He faces several misdemeanors, including assault and trespassing.
