At the Lake: Clubgoer allegedly bites security guard at Harrah's

Allegedly throwing a drink in the face of a bartender got Nicholas Cresta, 25, of Mill Valley kicked out of Vex nightclub at Harrah's Lake Tahoe. Cresta allegedly followed that by biting a security guard, for which he may face battery charges, an El Dorado County Sheriff's Office report indicated.

At about 3:05 a.m. Feb. 17, a deputy responded to a report of trespassing at Harrah's. Upon arrival, the deputy found Cresta in custody of the casino's security personnel.

After getting kicked out of the club, Cresta allegedly pushed a security guard, who subsequently tackled the Mill Valley resident. While on the ground, Cresta then allegedly bit the guard's chest, according to the security officer's statement in the sheriff's report.

When the security guard told the deputy he wanted to press charges, Cresta was cited for battery and released.

Cresta's case has been forwarded to the Douglas County District Attorney's Office for review, according to the report.
