Palo man facing multiple charges after threatening to kill bartender while getting kicked out

IOWA CITY, Iowa (KWWL) — A 18-year-old Palo man is facing multiple charges after threatening to kill a bar staff member while being kicked out for drunken behavior.

18-year-old Keyshawn Allers was arrested early Sunday morning and is facing six charges.

According to a criminal complaint, Allers was pointed out to police by bar staff at 118 S Dubuque Street for being a ‘problematic patron’ at 12:48 a.m.

Allers had allegedly told the bar manager he’d have someone “find him and kill him” when he was asked to leave. When an officer and the bar manager attempted to stop Aller, he punched the bar manager.

Allers fled from multiple police officers and squad cars. He was eventually found hiding in a nearby parking lot and refused to corporate with police, according to the complaint.

Police used pepper spray to subdue Allers.

A search was conducted and police found a Kansas City license with a fake name and date of birth. Allers refused a post-arrest breath test.

Allers is being charged with public intoxication, a first offense of being under the legal age in a bar, harassment 1st degree, disorderly conduct, possession of a fictitious license, and interference with official acts.

A mugshot was not available for Allers at this time.
