Lebanon, OR (KPTV) -- Police said a man who was upset about being denied service at a bar went on a rampage with a golf club Thursday night, smashing car windshields and attacking bystanders.

An officer was directing traffic after a car crash at South Second Street and West Oak Street around 9:30 p.m. when he spotted the man, later identified as Ricky Aldrich, 33, carrying the golf club.

Several minutes later, he heard loud banging and saw Aldrich walking away from a parked car with the club over his head.

Dispatchers then told the officer that people had begun chasing Aldrich.

The officer and another officer caught up with the crowd and found a person holding Aldrich down on the ground.

After a struggle, the officers were able to arrest Aldrich.

The other man, Edward Hurt was injured and needed treatment from paramedics.

Witnesses said Hurt had stopped Aldrich from damaging cars with the club, and Aldrich had hit him with it.

Hurt was treated at the scene and released.

Witnesses reported seeing Aldrich smashing windshields of cars along South Main Street, and officers counted a total of six vehicles with smashed-out windshields.

Aldrich told police that a bartender at a nearby bar had refused to serve him any more alcohol, so he went home, got the club and then started hitting cars with it.

Aldrich was taken to jail and charged with assault, criminal mischief and resisting arrest.
