    John Iorio is accused of trying to stab a bouncer at a Waterbury bar.

    A Waterbury man was arrested this past Friday after reportedly attempting to stab a bouncer with a steak knife at a downtown bar.

    A bouncer at the Prestige Bar on East Main Street told authorities that 52-year-old John Iorio tried to stab him after he showed up intoxicated and wasn't allowed in.

    The bouncer dodged Iorio's attack and nobody else was hurt, although Iorio allegedly stabbed at a passing truck before he left, according to police.

    City police arrived on scene to investigate and said they found Iorio on Maple Street with a wooden-handed steak knife in his possession.

    Iorio was arrested and charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree threatening and breach of peace. He is currently being held on $10,000 bond.
