MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say an off-duty Ball State University police officer cut a friend while waving a knife inside a strip club and threatened other officers as he was being arrested.

Muncie police say 30-year-old Eric Reffitt faced preliminary charges of criminal recklessness and public intoxication after the disturbance about 2 a.m. Wednesday at the Joker’s Wild on the city’s southside.

The Star Press reports (https://tspne.ws/SC4nRL ) Reffitt was attending a bachelor party when he pulled the knife out after apparently believing someone was trying to rob him. Police say the friend suffered a long scratch on his abdomen.

Police say Reffitt had a blood-alcohol content of 0.23 percent.

A university official said Reffitt’s arrest was under review. He was released from jail on bond. It wasn’t clear whether he had an attorney.
