A Virginia man faces charges after police said he pulled a
knife and threatened to kill people.
Benjamin D. McCloskey, 29, of Centreville, Va., was arraigned Tuesday on aggravated assault and related charges stemming from a Thanksgiving Day incident at his parents house on McCloskey Lane in Logan Township, according to police.
Police said the trouble started when McCloskey's wife asked him to go out to a party at 5:45 p.m. that McCloskey didn't want to go to, so he hid in the upstairs of the house, and when found, McCloskey allegedly became violent to the point he pulled out a knife and threatened to kill his father.
"There's going to be a lot of funerals," McCloskey allegedly said during the incident, one where he also threatened to kill himself, police noted.
Family members were able to disarm McCloskey and hold him down until police arrived.
Police said McCloskey appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and perhaps drugs.
McCloskey remains free on a unsecured $20,000 bond with a preliminary hearing scheduled for Dec. 19 before Magisterial District Judge Steven Jackson.
