An aspiring male go-go dancer was arrested on a count of attempted murder after allegedly shooting at a security guard in the parking lot of a gay nightclub in Las Vegas, Metro Police said.
Maxwell Mullen, 24, was booked at the Clark County Detention Center on Sunday on counts of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon stemming from an altercation with security at Share Nightclub, near Tropicana Avenue and Arville Street, according to a Metro arrest report.
According to the report, an irate and visibly drunk Mullen, who was auditioning for a go-go dancer position at the club Saturday night, was escorted from the club by Security Director Amir Coralic for causing a disturbance in the club.
Coralic reportedly told police that Mullen was running around the parking lot and threatening to get his gun and “shoot someone in the head.”
Mullen eventually went to his car and retrieved a .40-caliber handgun and fired two rounds at Coralic, missing him, the report said. While being taken down by Coralic, Mullen fired four more shots before he was subdued by the nightclub’s security team, the report said.
Metro officers arrested Mullen and took him to University Medical Center for treatment of injuries suffered during the struggle with the club’s security, police said. Officers recovered a gun, which was registered to Mullen, and six casings, the police report said.
Bail was set at $200,000. Mullen was scheduled to appear in court at 8 a.m. Wednesday.
