A Lake Havasu City man was arrested after being kicked out of a bar and in the process, slapping a security guard in the face with a flip flop.

According to the police report, on May 29 a Lake Havasu City Police officer was dispatched to the 2000 block of McCulloch Boulevard in reference to a disorderly conduct by a male, later identified as James Jenkins, who was also physical with security.

When the officer arrived, police say he contacted the victim who told him that a bar manager asked him to escort Jenkins from the bar.

When the security guard approached Jenkins, Jenkins allegedly chest bumped the guard who promptly took Jenkins to the ground. When Jenkins was stood up and told to leave, he allegedly took off his flip flop and slapped the guard in the face.

The report says that a witness was able to provide police with a video of the incident. Jenkins was arrested and transported to LHCPD jail where he was charged with disorderly conduct and assault.

If this was California the security guard would be going to jail and the drunk would be getting a payout.....
