An investigation is underway here in Tulsa into the death of a man who had a run in with a security guard at a Tulsa strip club.

Willie Harjo was reportedly causing a disturbance Monday night at Cloud Nine at 31st and Yale. A bouncer hit Harjo in the head with a flashlight. He died Tuesday night.

The head of security at another nightclub says his club has a policy to contain unruly patrons. He warns his fellow bouncers to avoid anything that could be considered an attack. Dave Sokol with Club Id Security, "They're not police officers, y'know, they're not there to play equalizer or terminator to anybody."

The bouncer at Cloud Nine has not been arrested. A report will be sent to the Tulsa County DA’s office. He'll determine if charges will be filed.
