A doorman at a Rogers Park bar is facing charges after he allegedly shot a patron and impersonated a police officer.

Danielito Valentin, 31, is charged with felony aggravated battery

The shooting happened in a dispute over an unpaid bar tab.

Valentin says the victim pulled a gun first.

He faces the impersonation charged after he reportedly admitted to carrying a Chicago police badge so he could pose as an off-duty cop.

Valentin was working the door at Gallagher's Bar in the 1700-block of West Greenleaf.
