VIRGINIA BEACH -- Police arrested a man for the Saturday death of a man at a  Virginia Beach nightclub

Police arrived at the Royale Blue nightclub on Baker Rd. shortly before 1:00 a.m. in response to a call for a man that collapsed on the dance floor.

Investigators say 30-year-old Samuel Dawkins of Virginia Beach was on the dance floor with friends when 23-year-old Lennell Darrell Skeeter hit him in the head with a bottle.

Dawkins was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Skeeter, of the 600 block of Cummings Drive in Suffolk, was arrested Sunday in Suffolk and is charged with Voluntary Manslaughter.

Police say there's nothing to indicate the men knew each other and there was no fight or altercation before the incident.
