A Greenville bar employee ended up behind bars of a different kind this weekend, after his arrest for assaulting a patron.
Greenville police officers say they saw Trevor Hakanson being thrown out of Lucky's Night Club Saturday.
Authorities say Hakanson was unconscious when employee Robert Edmonds pushed him to the pavement where he fell on his face.
Hakanson was transported to Pitt County Memorial Hospital where he had to undergo surgery.
Officers think while Edmonds was escorting Hakanson to the door in a chokehold he lost consciousness.
Edmonds is charged with Assault Inflicting Serious Injury and was being held in the Pitt County Detention Center under a $10,000 secured bond.
