Lincoln Police arrested a Lincoln man accused of stabbing a bouncer at a local gentlemen's club.

Police say officers were called to The Office at South Folsom and West Prospector streets just after 2 a.m. Saturday. When they arrived, several people were holding the suspect down in the parking lot.

Police say 26-year-old Benjamin Reddish was being escorted out of the club after being involved in a disturbance when he pulled a knife on the bouncer. Another employee stepped in to control Reddish, using a taser to stun him.

Reports indicate the bouncer suffered lacerations to his hands, and Reddish suffered a cut to his head. Both were treated at the hospital. Reddish was then lodged in jail for second degree assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
