JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Two men were arrested Saturday night after a fight at the Vault nightclub.

A Jonesboro police officer who was working security was asked to come inside by the staff.

According to the police report, Shon Hester, 30, of Jonesboro hit Thurstle Dale Mullen, 52, of Cordova, TN in the mouth.

Mullen retaliated by hitting Hester with a beer bottle in the side of his head.

Both men were arrested and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

Once officers arrived at the Craighead County Detention Center with Mullen, he refused to get out of the patrol vehicle.

Once police got him out of the car, Mullen refused to stand up, so officers reportedly drug him to the doors of the jail.

He was also yelling at the officers, threatening to hurt them once he got out of jail and trying to kick them.

He was additionally charged with felony terroristic threatening and resisting arrest.
