NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 24-year-old man has been charged with assault after he reportedly punched a bouncer at a Broadway bar and threw a hot dog at his head.

According to an arrest warrant, Demonte Waters was standing at the entrance of Bootleggers Inn on Broadway near Second Avenue South around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, when a bouncer told him to either enter the doors or leave the property.
