A man allegedly took out a revolver after refusing to move out of a valet parking spot at a River North nightclub early Friday.

Cook County prosecutors said Van M. Johnson argued with two security guards outside Bodi in the 800 block of North Orleans, then screamed “F— that. I’m gonna air this s— out,” before taking out a blue steel revolver from his glove compartment.

The argument erupted after security asked him to move his 2010 Chevy Camaro and told him he couldn’t get in the club, court records show.

Security also took out their guns and were able to detain Johnson until Chicago Police arrived.

At the police station, Johnson, a U.S. Veteran, told police the gun belonged to his father, a Chicago cop. But a check in records showed that was false.

The gun was found unlocked in the glove compartment with four live rounds inside.

Johnson was ordered held in lieu of $25,000 bail Saturday.
