A 31-year-old man has been charged after a hotel security guard was shot in the arm with an air gun in Lismore on Saturday night.

The security guard sustained a minor injury after the incident at the hotel in Molesworth Street, just after 11pm on Saturday.

A short time later, police from the Richmond Local Area Command arrested the 31-year-old at a house in Ballina Road, Lismore and an air gun was seized for forensic examination.

The man has been charged with using a firearm with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, discharging a firearm in a manner likely to injure persons or property, possessing ammunition without a permit or licence and other firearm licensing offences.

He was granted conditional bail to appear before the Lismore Local Court on Monday.
