Colquitt County - A club bouncer claims self defense after shooting a man.

Twenty-six-year-old Tremaine Tyler was shot in the arm early Sunday morning at Club Millennium in Colquitt County. He was treated and released from the hospital.

Tyler was shot after a group of guys jumped on the bouncer, 29-year-old Jerome Blakely. Blakely shot in the air and the bullet hit Tyler. Blakely has a license to carry a firearm. He was not arrested, but charges are pending.

Thirty minutes after the shooting, the victim's cousin Reginald Tyler was arrested at the club for biting off part of an officer's finger. The officer is doing fine.

Reginald Tyler was also charged with kicking and damaging a patrol car.
