Yesterday at approximately 3:30 p.m., officers responded to the 900 block of Lynn Street in reference to a man walking down the street waving a large knife in the air.
Sergeant J.D. Hart made contact with Michael Glen Bollinger who was allegedly acting and speaking irrationally. Bollinger eventually complied with officers commands and was safely detained. A search of his person allegedly revealed a fixed blade knife with a nine (9) inch blade, concealed under three (3) winter coats.
Bollinger was taken into custody and transported to headquarters where he was processed on misdemeanor charges of carrying a concealed deadly weapon. He was later arraigned in Wood County Magistrate Court and held on a $1,500.00 bond. He is scheduled to be transported to the North Central Regional Jail later today.
