LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. — Police say they’ve charged a man who brandished a gun during a confrontation with a bouncer at a bar in a popular Adirondack tourist town.

WNYT-TV in Albany reports (http://bit.ly/2vL5IxN ) that a bartender at the Fire and Ice Bar and Grill on the main street in the village of Lake George says four men were asked to leave by the bouncers around 1:30 a.m. Friday.

The bartender says the men returned and one of them pulled a gun on the bouncers before walking away.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office says officers responded and found 29-year-old Luke Tallman, of nearby Corinth, a short time later. Officers say the gun was found in his vehicle.

The charges against Tallman include criminal possession of a weapon and menacing. He’s in custody pending arraignment.

It couldn’t be learned if he has a lawyer.
