A Bryan man was arrested by Bryan police September 1 on a charge of threatening someone with a knife. A BPD spokesman tells WTAW News that 30 year old Jason Calhoun is accused of pointing an eight inch chef knife at the victim. That is after Calhoun threw the victim to the ground in an attempt to get their cell phone. Calhoun is also awaiting trial on a misdemeanor charge of family violence assault that took place in June, where he is accused of pushing a different victim to the ground and punching him several times.
