LINCOLN -- A 26-year-old Lincoln man is facing assault and weapons charges after he cut a bouncer at a gentleman's club early Saturday morning. Police Officer Katie Flood says Benjamin Reddish got into an argument with another man over too much attention given to a dancer, who happened to be Reddish's girlfriend. As Reddish was being escorted out of the club, he pulled a knife on the bouncer and stabbed him in the hand. He's was treated and released. Reddish is now facing charges of second-degree assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony. Reddish has a criminal history, including his involvement in a 2005 fire that burned a house under construction near 70th and Old Cheney.
