Faudskar says officers spotted Abikar outside of the building when they arrived. As an officer attempted to arrest him, Abikar allegedly kicked the officer in the stomach. The kick sent the officer to ground but did not injure him, Faudskar said. Abikar was arrested without further incident.


Abikar is expected to face charges for assaulting a police officer obstructing the legal process and disorderly conduct. Faudskar said the employee, whose head Abikar allegedly broke the cup over, declined to press charges.
