Alleged knife wielding man arrested; chased victim

Mullens Police Department officers arrested Jonathan Logan Jackson after he allegedly pulled a large knife and chased another person down a city street, according to Police Chief Ray Toler.

Jackson was charged with two counts of battery on a police officer, obstructing and assault, Toler said.

Jackson also had an outstanding warrant for destruction of property and had been released from home confinement three days prior to this incident, Toler said.

Both Toler and Assistant Police Chief Jack Meadows, as well as Jackson, were treated by Jan-Care Ambulance Service personnel following the incident.

“Jackson stated he had to fight the police, it was a code of honor among skinheads not to go without fighting; and that he could now obtain colors for bringing blood and fighting with the police,” Toler said.
