    A man has been arrested after trying to pay for a lap dance at an Austin strip club with crack cocaine and then resisting arrest.

    Authorities say 26-year-old Ricardo Luna, arrested Sunday, has been charged with retaliation, resisting arrest and harassment of a public servant.

    He remained in Travis County jail Monday on $45,000 bond. Jail records did not list an attorney for him.

    The Austin American-Statesman reports that according to an arrest affidavit, sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the club at 4 a.m. Sunday. A security officer told deputies that Luna tried to buy a lap dance using drugs and kicked the security guard as he was escorted out.

    The affidavit says also Luna kicked one of the deputies and spit blood and saliva over them.
