Iowa City police arrested a Wisconsin man after he allegedly punched a doorman at the Union Bar.

Adam Wing, 22, of La Crosse was charged March 26 with assault causing bodily injury.

According to a complaint, officers were conducting a bar check when they were advised of an assault by the back door into the alley of the Union Bar, 121 E. College St.

After checking the area, police were told Wing was at the front door, where three staff members identified Wing as the person who allegedly assaulted the doorman, the report said.

Staff told police Wing had been removed from the bar and upon reaching the back door, punched the doorman in the face, leaving a cut above his left eye that required medical attention.

Wing told police he was defending himself because of the aggressive way he was removed from the bar.
