Police arrested a convicted felon for carrying a pistol after they were dispatched to a fight at BJW Ultra Lounge, according to a criminal complaint by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

Officers with the Racine Police Department went to the bar at 1301 Washington Avenue April 15, at the time of bar close and found a large group of individuals that were part of the fight which spilled out onto the street.

They followed one suspect, Demond L. Hicks, 31, of Racine, leaving the scene. He ran down 13th Street. Officers told him to stop. Eventually, he stopped and ducked behind a car. He pulled a Taurus Millenium g3 pistol from his waistband, tossed it onto the street, and then took off running.

The officer arrested him. Upon inspection of the pistol, he found that the serial numbers had been scratched off.

Hicks is charged with possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, altering identifying marks on manufactured property and resisting an officer.
