Authorities said the suspect was placed in a cab, but got out and tried kicking the bar’s door down.
The suspect is also accused of kicking an officer who was serving as the bar’s security for trying to restrain him.
Holmes was then reportedly arrested and taken to WakeMed hospital to have his blood alcohol level checked.
Officials said the suspect was handcuffed and taken to a bathroom by law enforcement and a nurse to supply a urine sample.
Holmes is accused of throwing his urine in the face of the officer serving as escort.
The suspect faces multiple charges including assault on a female, assaulting a government official, intoxicated and disruptive behavior, resisting a public officer, second degree trespass and malicious conduct by a prisoner.
Holmes was released from the Wake County Detention Center on a $30,000 bond and has court planned for Monday.
The suspect was described by WCNC-TV as a prominent criminal defense attorney in Harnett and Lee County who also practices family law in Wake County.
