SUPERIOR, WI-- One man is now in custody for firing shots outside a local bar he was kicked out of early Thursday.

According to Superior Police officers, it was after midnight Thursday, May 26 when they were called to The Palace Bar on Tower Ave. to shots being fired.

According to the report, a 49-year-old male caused numerous disturbances in the bar and hit the bouncer in the face before he left.

He allegedly threatened to shoot the bouncer.

A little while later, shots were heard coming from the alley outside the bar.

Officers located the 49-year-old man from Blaine and he was taken into custody.

He is currently at Douglas County Jail, with pending charges of Recklessly Endangering Safety, Disorderly Conduct, and Going Armed While Intoxicated.

Superior Police have previously recommended the city pull the bar’s liquor license.

They say they’ve responded to multiple calls like this there.

There’s a hearing on that June 7.
