A 46-year-old Scottsbluff man is facing several felony charges after a Thursday incident at McCaffree Park in Scottsbluff.
Court documents say that Brandon Pate was arrested near Park and W. 15th Street after a male confronted him for urinating in public. Pate reportedly pulled a knife, threatened to slit the man’s throat and chased him while making slashing motions.
Police apprehended Pate, and found a total of five knives and a smoking device that smelled like marijuana. Nearby surveillance video also showed a man believed to be Pate chasing the victim with the knife.
He was subsequently arrested and charged with: Use of a Deadly Weapon to Commit a Felony, Felon in Possession of a Deadly Weapon, and Terroristic Threats.
Bond has been set at $100,000 at 10%, and he was scheduled to make his first appearance on the charges on Monday afternoon in Scotts Bluff County Court:
