A downtown bouncer needed stitches after being punched in the face by a man trying to get into Wando’s on University Avenue early Friday morning.

Police said officers were called to the bar at 602 University Ave. at about 1 a.m. after the confrontation that resulted when the man who had been kicked out of the bar tried to get back in while smoking a cigarette.

After being punched, the bouncer was able to hold the man until police arrived.

Michael J. Heard, 21, of Madison, was arrested on suspicion of substantial battery and disorderly conduct.
