FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A New York man who threw a drink at a bouncer, tried to fight with fellow patrons and threatened to “knock out” a police officer was arrested early Saturday outside a Sanford Place bar, police said.

Security staffers at Crave Bar & Grill repeatedly asked Aaron Tomlinson, 22, of Bronx, N.Y., to leave the bar because he was bothering other patrons and threw a drink at security, police said.

Once outside, witnesses told police Tomlinson was shouting obscenities, trying to start fights and blocking traffic, police said.

When police arrived shortly after midnight, he said he was going to knock out an officer, police said.

Tomlinson was issued a misdemeanor summons for disorderly conduct. He was released on a promise to appear in court on Dec. 4.
