SALT LAKE CITY -- Salt Lake City police arrested a man they say threatened a group of people with a sword.

Police say Charles Danilson and his girlfriend were at a home near 1000 South and 1400 West Tuesday. Others who were there asked the couple to leave because they started smoking meth.

Danilson left the home but came back with a sword he found in a neighbor's yard. Police say he threatened to kill the group, then took off.

Officers arrested Danilson at a store a few blocks away.
