Manhattan A 45-year-old Manhattan man is facing several charges after an incident involving a boa constrictor and a large sword.
WIBW reports Riley County police officers were called to a home Friday afternoon where friends of the man said he was acting weird and throwing a boa constrictor down on the ground repeatedly.
Police say officers were attempting to arrest the man for animal cruelty when he started swinging a large sword around and threatening them.
The man was subdued and charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, obstructing the legal process, disorderly conduct and animal cruelty.
He also was charged with criminal damage because police say he damaged a window in the patrol car with his handcuffs on the way to jail.
