Iowa City police arrested a man after he allegedly hit another man with a stun gun in a downtown bar.

Brandt Russell Hockman, 26, 902 Benton Drive Apt. 32, was charged Oct. 22 with going armed with intent.

According to a complaint, the alleged victim told police he was standing at a table near the bar at DC's, 124 S. Dubuque St., when Hockman approached him.

Hockman then allegedly told the man to "get the f*** out of the bar" before striking him in the chest with an object believed to be a stun gun.

The report said the stun gun then slipped off the man's chest, hitting him on the biceps. The complaint said the alleged victim told police it was "very painful" and he couldn't move.

The complaint said the man then left the bar, noticing burn marks on his bicep. He told police the doors to the bar were locked behind him, and he watched through the window while an off-duty employee and several other individuals allegedly assaulted his friend.
