LCSO: Man arrested after waving knife at neighbors, having booby-trap


LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ)- The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office says it arrested a man Wednesday evening after neighbors called in and said he was intoxicated and was waving a large knife at them.

Deputies say that when they arrived, they found a booby-trap device on the front porch of 56-year-old Raymond Jackson’s home. They say the device was one half sheet of plywood with several knives sticking out of it, mounted on a hinge to swing downward.
