Man accused of corkscrew threat in public bathroom
Oct 28, 2009
CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Police arrested a 56-year-old man accused of threatening another man with a corkscrew at a public restroom in Riverfront Commemorative Park. A witness told police he saw a man holding a corkscrew in his hand while kicking the bathroom door and threatening to kill the man inside. No one was injured.
Officers arrested the man on charges of menacing, unlawful use of a weapon and disorderly conduct. They confiscated the corkscrew, which was used by the officers back at the station to open a bottle of wine one officer had in his locker.
The man, who has no permanent address, was taken to the Benton County jail. The report did not mention whether the corkscrew owner was offered a glass of the wine from the tasting he made possible.
Instead, bail was set at $62,500 after his arraignment Tuesday afternoon.
