A 19-year-old man twice refused entry to a York City bar early Friday morning tried to entice bouncers into fighting him, then pointed a loaded 12-gauge shotgun at them when they declined to rumble, police allege.
Khristopher Wade is in York County Prison on $100,000 bail.
York City Police were called to Banana Max, 1401 Roosevelt Ave., just before 1 a.m. When officers got to the scene, Wade took off, police said.
He was arrested after a short foot pursuit, police said.
No ID: According to Lt. Tim Utley, Wade had tried to get into Banana Max without showing identification, but was thrown out by security.
Wade left, but returned and fought with bar security, who ended the scuffle by pepper-spraying him, Utley said.
Wade again left the area, but came back and tried to entice bouncers to come out to the parking lot and fight him, according to the lieutenant, but they didn't take him up on the challenge.
12-gauge: At that point, Wade picked up a 12-gauge shotgun and pointed it at the bouncers, who ran inside the bar and called 911, Utley said.
Wade wasn't brandishing the shotgun when officers arrived, but they found it inside the vehicle he'd arrived in, according to Utley -- with one live round in the barrel and a second round jammed in the action of the weapon.
Wade was also in possession of brass knuckles, he said.
Wade, of 651 N. Pershing Ave. in York City, is charged with illegal firearm possession, making terroristic threats,
