Duluth police say that a 33-year-old man is in custody for allegedly pointing or waving two handguns at cars that were driving by.

Police say they responded to the 3100 block of West 3rd Street just before noon on Wednesday after receiving two separate reports of the man pointing the guns at cars.

When police detained the man, they found him to be in possession of a BB gun and an airsoft gun. 

He was arrested on terroristic threats, disorderly conduct, and possession of a BB gun in a public place charges.

Police report that the man became belligerent while in custody, and spit in an officer's face. 

For that, police say that a 4th degree assault charge was also added.
