Officer's Report: Timothy Larsen

Statement of DSG Timothy Larsen, arresting officer


"The suspect Michael Brown was standing outside 110 West Park Street near some other spectators. He seemed unusually agitated and defensive; I was keeping an eye on him while trying to carry out my other duties. I saw him pull a knife from his pocket and begin to threaten some of the people who had approached him too nearly. At that point I intervened, confiscated the knife, and searched him for other concealed weapons. I found no other weapon, but did find a small bag of white powder. The suspect refused to identify the powder. It has been sent for analysis. His behavior seemed to be consistent with that of some one under the influence of some kind of drug. A blood test was taken to be tested for the presence of any controlled substance. A statement was taken at the police station. The suspect appears to have some evidence related to the Samuel Herrick case. His statement is therefore included in that report."
