Police were told that the man, his 45 year-old West Bend girlfriend, and some friends were drinking in the bar when the man confronted another bar patron because he believed that he was saying derogatory things about his girlfriend, according to police reports. The other bar patron pushed the West Allis man to get him away from him.
The West Allis man then went outside to smoke a cigarette and produced a knife and was waving it around and wanting the man who pushed him to come outside so they could "settle it," according to reports.
