A man was arrested early Friday morning after he flashed a gun outside of a bar in downtown Lexington, police said.
As officers tried to disperse a crowd gathered outside Two Keys Tavern on South Limestone at about 2:30 a.m., they noticed a man pull out a handgun, police said. The bar, often frequented by local college students, closes at 2:30 a.m. The bar is near the University of Kentucky campus.
The suspect fled, eventually tossing the gun to the ground as officers pursued him, police said. They caught up with the suspect and arrested him on charges of carrying a concealed weapon.
The suspect's name was not immediately released. No one was hurt in the incident, as the man never fired the gun.
