WARSAW — A Warsaw man was recently arrested after allegedly threatening two people while in possession of a knife.
Nicholas Andrew Meade, 42, 5849 S. West Channel Road, Warsaw, is charged with two counts of intimidation with a deadly weapon, both level 5 felonies; and domestic battery with a child under 16 present, a level 6 felony.
On June 16, the Pierceton Police chief responded to a domestic dispute at a location in Warsaw. Officers learned that a man armed with a knife, as well as a woman and child, were in a home. Upon arrival at the scene, the chief, with assistance from a Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office deputy, approached the home and were met by a woman at the door.
According to court documents, when asked if anyone else was in the home, the woman said there was not but consented to officers checking the residence. Upon walking into the home, the chief found two men behind the door. The chief later learned that the woman had been in a physical altercation with Meade. When Meade was taken into custody, he was found to have a four-inch flip blade knife in his possession.
The woman said she was attempting to wake up Meade while she was holding a child when Meade became upset. He allegedly hit the woman on the right side of her face with his hand. The woman told the chief she called someone to come pick up her children from the home. However, Meade said the children were not going anywhere and that he would hurt whoever tried to take them.
When the person came to pick up the children, Meade pulled a knife out and told them to get out of the home or they would be sorry.
Meade also told the person several times that if they did not get out of the house, he was going to kill everyone.
For this case, Meade was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail on June 16, with an $11,000 surety and cash bond.
