Superior Man Faces Attempted Homicide Charges

by

SUPERIOR, WI (KDAL) - A 30 year old Superior man is in custody on a variety of charges including attempted homicide after pulling a knife on a police officer who was trying to arrest him.  The incident occurred on Tuesday morning when officers were called to a residence on the 5800 block of Banks Avenue.  The reporting person said her adult son was intoxicated and causing a disturbance.  After being asked to leave, the man refused and continued to create a disturbance at the scene.  As the officer attempted to arrest the man, he pulled a dagger type knife and after it was knocked out of his hand, attempted to grab the officers handgun.  The suspect continued to resist arrest and would not allow officers to handcuff him.  A burst of pepper spray allowed officers to finally gain control of the man who was taken to a hospital for treatment before being jailed.  Formal charges are expected to be filed on Friday
