It's great that they have him in custody. But how does picking up a butter knife from a table get one charged with fourth-degree possession of weapon for an unlawful purpose and third-degree unlawful possession of a weapon?

Picking up the knife under normal circumstances doesn't... brandishing it at someone while in the midst of a physical altercation does.


“But how does picking up a butter knife from a table get one charged with fourth-degree possession of weapon for an unlawful purpose and third-degree unlawful possession of a weapon?”

Because anything can be used as a weapon. A shoelace, pencil, computer mouse, car keys or whatever. All are tools that can assist the user in causing harm, if that’s their *intent*.

Possession of a weapon though? Every single person is guilty of that charge every day, all day long so that’s kind of a ridiculous “kitchen-sink” charge imo.
