LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a Louisville man's threatening and inappropriate remarks -- including a comment about school shootings -- led to his arrest.
Officers responded to a business located at 2200 Bardstown Road around 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve after receiving complaints about an individual making threatening and racial remarks toward the staff.
According to an arrest report, the suspect stated that there "needed to be more school shootings." That comment alarmed one witness, who then called police.
When police arrived, an officer noticed 29-year-old Brandon Aebersold -- who matched the description given by witnesses. When officers approached Aebersold, he became "very belligerent" and began making threats to "send the officer to hell." He also reportedly told an officer "you'll get yours."
Aebersold was advised that he was being arrested, but put up a fight. During the scuffle, police say he unsuccessfully tried to grab the officers' taser but couldn't get it out of its holster.
Aebersold now faces charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and terroristic threatening.
