NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police arrested a man for aggravated assault after they said he pulled a knife on a military recruiter.

Patrick Counts, 24, was arrested after an incident at the National Guard Recruiting Office at Edge O Lake Drive in Antioch, Tuesday.

Police said he walked into the office around 1 p.m. and inquired about enlisting. A Sergeant, who told police he had prior knowledge of Counts, asked him to leave.

At that point, police said Counts pulled out a pocketknife, unfolded the blade and approached the Sgt. in a "threatening manner." The Sgt. said because of his history with him, he was in fear for his safety.

No one was hurt.

There was another person inside the office at the time, so police arrested him on two counts of aggravated assault.

Counts does not have a criminal history in Davidson County.
