2909 E. Washington Ave. (Walgreens)


Samuel L. Calhoun, age 55, Madison
Suspect was arrested for disorderly conduct, carrying a concealed weapon, resisting/obstructing, unlawful trespass, battery or threat to judge, prosecutor or law enforcement.


 A drunken man pulled a folding knife on police officers - but did not extend its blade - as he threatened to cut them. He also told a female officer he would slit her throat. The MPD had contacted the man inside Walgreens, 2909 E. Washington Ave., where he was creating a disturbance by yelling at staff and customers yesterday afternoon. The knife incident took place outside as officers tried to calm the man down. They were able to safely disarm him and take him into custody.
