A man in a skin-tight leopard suit allegedly assaulted a police sergeant who was trying to arrest him early on Sunday.
Police were called at around 2:45am to the area of MJ’s Bar in Dayton, Ohio, after the costumed man punched a bar patron in the face for no reason.
The victim was standing outside the bar talking to friends when he was struck, and the victim did not know his assailant, identified as 21-year-old Robert M. Alflen, according to the Dayton police report.
The victim tried to get away from Alflen, but he kept trying to come at him.
MJ’s Bar owner said Alflen had also tried to take a swipe at him and a bar security staff member, the report stated.
Alflen was hit by a police Taser and was handcuffed in the middle of the street.
He was taken to Grandview Medical Center to be checked out, then booked into the Montgomery County Jail on suspicion of assault on a police officer, a fourth-degree felony.
