On Tuesday evening, dispatchers received a report that a male in a red vehicle in the Arby's drive-through had pointed a firearm at another car.

According to a police news release, a 20-year-old man got out of the vehicle when officers arrived and immediately began taking off his clothes, saying he was unarmed, and later ran around the building.  He was eventually found laying on the pavement in the drive-through, and officers say a Glock 9mm was found about ten feet away.

Police say the man was combative and resisted arrest, attempting to kick officers and spitting on them, but was eventually handcuffed and taken to jail.  Police say he damaged a police vehicle by kicking the door and windows and later threatened officers at the jail.

Officer and jail staff found drugs hidden in the suspect's socks, police say.

The man faces possible charges of possession of methamphetamine, disorderly conduct, bail jumping, threats to injure, and possession of THC with intent to deliver.
