IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa City Police arrest Austin Patrick, a 21 year old man from Illinois, after police say he was dancing behind and bumped into an officer. He faces public intoxication charges related to the incident.

Criminal complaints suggest that Patrick had been drinking at The Summit Restaurant & Bar in Iowa City and got into an argument with the bar's manager after a drink was thrown near the dance floor.

Also, an officer says that when he was going to leave the bar, Patrick walked up and started dancing behind him and eventually bumped the officer while dancing.

He was taken to the Johnson County Jail after telling police that he'd had five drinks and tested for 0.167% BAC.
