On May 28, 2023, shortly after 9:00 am, police responded to a report of a customer who was behaving in a threatening manner towards employees at a retail business in the 800 block of 18th street N.  The male threatened to shoot up the store.  He left the business but came back while police were there.

When police attempted to arrest him he resisted and was about to leave.  Police deployed a conducted energy weapon to prevent him from resisting further and escaping.  The male was not in possession of any weapons upon his arrest.

The 60-year-old male was later released to appear in court on July 27, 2023 on charges of Uttering Threats, Resist Arrest, and Cause Disturbance.
