EASTLAKE -- A man was arrested while carrying two, large knives when he was going back to a bar where his girlfriend was slapped to "take care of business."

Just after 1:30 a.m. Saturday, an Eastlake resident walked into the police station and said he was at the Handle Bar celebrating his 50th birthday and got into a verbal fight.

That led to the men mutually agreeing to step out into the parking lot to fight. The man then told police his girlfriend attempted to intervene and was slapped by one of the men.

The woman, who was outside of the station, said she did not know who struck her nor was she injured.

Speaking with patrons at the bar, they told police they did not know either man involved in the fight.

Police said the couple was admittedly intoxicated and drove them to their home.

They were told to return when they were sober if they wished to pursue the matter further.

Just after 2 a.m., the man who had come to the police station about the incident at the Handle Bar called 911, advising that he was walking back to the bar with two knives to "take care of business."

Police located him on Stevens Boulevard, exactly where he told police dispatch he was.

When confronted by police, he immediately told officers where the knives were located on his body -- a 9-1/2 inch knife and an 11-inch knife.

He was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly intoxication.

He was held until sober and bond could be met.
