Honolulu police arrested a Waikiki bouncer who allegedly subdued and assaulted an unruly patron in June.
Police arrested the bouncer, a 29-year-old Palolo man, yesterday afternoon and released him pending further investigation.
Police said that on June 19 at 10:22 p.m., a 32-year-old man brought his own bottle of liquor into a bar. When bouncers attempted to escort him out of the bar, the man pulled away and hit one of the bouncers, police said.
The bouncer who was hit put the man into a chokehold until he was nearly unconscious and then struck the man in the face with his knee, police said.
Police did not identify the bar where bouncer worked.
