Metro Nashville police arrested a man from DeKalb County for aggravated assault after he allegedly pulled a knife on a military recruiter.
24 year old Patrick Counts, was arrested after an incident at the National Guard Recruiting Office at Edge O Lake Drive in Antioch last Tuesday.
Police said he walked into the office around 1 p.m. and inquired about enlisting. A Sergeant, who told police he had prior knowledge of Counts, asked him to leave.
At that point, police said Counts pulled out a pocketknife, unfolded the blade and approached the Sgt. in a "threatening manner." The Sgt. said because of his history with him, he was in fear for his safety.
No one was hurt.
There was another person inside the office at the time, so police arrested him on two counts of aggravated assault.
