POLICE BLOTTER: Man threatens Sumter police officers



Christopher S. Sherman, 39, no known address, was arrested on Sunday and charged with trespassing after notice, disorderly conduct, third-degree assault and carrying a concealed weapon for allegedly brandishing a knife while he was being searched after trespassing at a convenience store on Boulevard Road. An incident report from Sumter Police Department states that Sherman threatened to fight officers and kick them in the head before pulling a lock-blade knife from his back pocket. He threatened to harm the officers if they touched him, even after he was warned that pepper spray or a Taser would be used unless he dropped the weapon. Sherman put down the knife and was taken into custody after an officer brought out a non-lethal shotgun. The non-lethal firearm was not pointed at Sherman during the interaction, according to the report.
