Lincoln NE April 11 2017 A Lincoln man was stunned and arrested after police say he pulled a knife on a security guard at La Cabana early Sunday.
Police were called about the disturbance just after 2 a.m., and when they arrived to 3223 Cornhusker Highway, the officer saw Manuel Perez, 38, 441 S. 44th St., holding a knife while a security officer for the bar had him at gunpoint, according to court documents.
The officer gave Perez commands to get on the ground, but Perez ignored them and started walking toward the officers, the document says. At one point, he started reaching toward his belt, but then put his hands back up. The Lincoln officer deployed his Taser for one cycle and Perez dropped to the ground, the document says.
Both officers tried getting Perez into custody, but he began struggling and tried pulling the Taser probe out of his stomach. The officer stunned him once more and Perez was arrested, the document says.
The 26-year-old security officer told LPD that Perez refused to leave the bar at 2 a.m. When staff tried to escort him out, Perez pulled out a knife and pointed it at the security officer, the document says.
Perez was arrested on suspicion of terroristic threats, use of a weapon to commit a felony, trespassing and failure to comply.
