A Spokane man was arrested this weekend for allegedly bringing a gun to a fistfight outside a bar in the Garland District.
Kellen P. Ward, 30, is accused of pointing a semi-automatic pistol at a group in the parking lot of the Revolver Bar, 633 W. Garland Ave., on Saturday at about 2 a.m.
A witness told police that his friend Neno Testa fought with several others from the bar in the roadway, where several people were knocked to the ground. A white Lincoln Town Car arrived and a man weighing about 225 pounds and wearing glasses exited and brandished the gun. Witnesses said he told the group “you … think you’re bad? I’ll kill you,” according to court documents. The car fled westbound on Garland.
Police stopped it at Jefferson Street and Garland Avenue and arrested Ward, who they say was driving. He matched the description of the gunman, and police found a handgun in the car.
Ward, a convicted felon, was booked into jail for unlawful possession of a firearm. Records show Ward pleaded guilty in 2006 to attempting to elude a police vehicle and conspiracy to possess a controlled substance.
