An Evansville man is arrested Sunday morning after authorities say he allegedly fired a shot in the parking lot of a bar.

Evansville police say an officer was working off-duty around 3 a.m. in the 1800 Block of North Fulton Avenue at K.C.'s Corner Pocket when a large fight broke out in the parking lot as people were leaving.

EPD says as the officer was separating the fight, a gunshot rang out no more than 20 feet from his location. We're told the officer saw 32-year-oldAnthony Alexander Smallings carrying a handgun.

Authorities say the officer immediately drew his department issued firearm and began giving Smallings verbal commands to drop his weapon. The suspect complied and was placed in custody.

Police say no one was struck with the fired round.

Smallings was booked in the Vanderburgh County Jail where he is charged with Criminal Recklessness with a deadly weapon.
