EVANSVILLE, Ind. - An Evansville man is in jail after a string of incidents that started when he apparently tried to get into a nightclub without paying a cover charge, according to Evansville police.
Officers arrested Bruce D. Adams, 33, early Tuesday after a police pursuit that ended at 2:45 a.m., the Evansville Courier and Press reported.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Adams is suspected of striking an employee of the Busy Body Lounge twice in the face.
The employee told police Adams refused to provide identification or pay a cover charge when entering the strip club.
According to the affidavit, two officers spotted Adams driving a Chrysler 300 and followed the vehicle to an apartment complex.
That’s where officers tried to initiate a traffic stop, but Adams reportedly fled, first by car then on foot.
Adams is currently in the Vanderburgh County Jail and faces preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement and driving while being a habitual traffic violator, both felonies. He is also preliminarily charged with one count of misdemeanor battery.
