Police: Man flirted with bartender, gave her his phone number before attempting to shoot patron at Beer Belly's Bar in Gary

{{featured_button_text}}

CROWN POINT – A 29-year-old man allegedly gave a bartender his phone number before attempting to shoot another patron last fall at a Gary bar, according to court records filed Wednesday.

Adam G. Rozier, of Gary, was charged Wednesday in Lake Criminal Court with four felony counts of criminal recklessness and one misdemeanor count of criminal mischief.

A customer told police he “had a few words” with a man Nov. 6 at Beer Belly's Bar, 4450 Cleveland St.

He said the man left, but returned 15 minutes later with a handgun and fired several shots into the bar.

No one was reported injured in the shooting, records state.

A bartender told police the suspect had been bugging her all night for her phone number. She said she took his phone number, which she provided to police.

A search of a police database indicated the number was registered to Rozier. The bartender identified Rozier as the shooter in a photo array, records state.

Rozier was also identified as the shooter from the bar's video surveillance.

A warrant was issued Wednesday for Rozier's arrest.

His surety bond is $80,000, records state.
