A 42-year-old man was arrested Sunday after allegedly threatening two men with a knife at a bar in downtown Mitchell.
Todd Owen King, of Mitchell, was escorted out of Big Dummy’s, located in the 100 block of North Main Street, for causing a disturbance, but then reentered the bar and started a verbal altercation with two men, according to a Mitchell Police Division news release.
King placed his hands on one of the men and was then hit by one of the men, the release says. At that point, the two men walked away from King. King then allegedly pulled out a knife and aggressively approached the two men from behind while holding the knife out toward them. The men apparently had their backs to King when he brandished the knife.
The incident was reported to the Mitchell Police Division at 1:18 a.m. and King was arrested shortly after.
King is charged with one count of aggravated assault, which is a felony with a maximum punishment of 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
King remained in custody Monday at the Davison County Jail with his bond set at $10,000 cash. A court date has not yet been scheduled.
