Man allegedly pulls out gun at bar

LORAIN  — Jealousy over a dancing woman prompted a man to draw a gun and make threats to a customer at Biggy’s Pub on

Oberlin Avenue about 2:25 a.m. Friday, according to a Lorain police report.

Ricardo Harrison, 40, put a small chrome handgun against the neck of Arvin Hines, 25, and threatened to kill him, after a woman who went to the bar with Harrison started dancing next to Hines, the report said. Harrison fled when the bartender said he was calling the police.

Officers did not find a gun in Harrison’s possession. K-9 Officer J.B., however, sniffed out the weapon in the backyard of an Oberlin Avenue residence Harrison had been seen near following the alleged altercation, the report said.

Harrison was charged with aggravated menacing and having a weapon under disability, and was taken to the county jail.
