No one was seriously injured in the incident.by: WASHINGTON COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE - Daniel Broome was arrested Thursdsay night after an alleged carjacking attempt at an Aloha nightspot.

Deputies were called to the Club Underground, 18641 S.W. Tualatin Valley Highway in Aloha, at about 10:55 p.m., concerning an attempted theft of a vehicle involving a firearm. Deputies arrived momentarily to a very chaotic scene in the north parking lot, finding people holding down Daniel Broome, 30, of Hillsboro. Deputies took Broome into custody and seized a loaded handgun that someone had taken off him, said Sgt. Bob Ray, a sheriff’s office spokesman.

Investigators learned Broome approached a vehicle with four people and allegedly tapped a handgun on the driver's door window demanding keys and the occupants to remove themselves from the 1996 Nissan 200SX two-door coupe.

The Nissan’s 33-year-old driver said she was concerned Broome was going to shoot her and her friends, so she armed herself with a knife. As she exited the vehicle, the victim grabbed Broome and wrestled him to the ground, Ray reported. Other patrons assisted and took the handgun from Broome as deputies were being called.

Broome suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from a nearby hospital before he was taken to the Washington County Jail. He faces accusations of first-degree robbery and is being held on $250,000 bail.
