DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A man was charged after police say he threatened a detective with nunchuks.
McCory J. Slemmons, 26, of Davenport, was charged Wednesday with assault while displaying a dangerous weapon and public intoxication.
The detective was monitoring an area where officers were looking for a robbery suspect early Wednesday morning when Slemmons approached him and accused the detective of “looking at his wife,” court documents said.
Slemmons then challenged the detective to a fight and pulled out nunchuks, police records show.
The detective arrested Slemmons, who later admitted during a police interview that had been drinking vodka and beer, records show.
Nunchuks are a weapon commonly used in martial arts. They consist of two hardwood sticks attached by a leather strap or chain.
