Man With Hammer Arrested at Baltimore City Hall

A man holding a hammer was arrested Friday outside City Hall after he made a series of threats against police officers, a Baltimore Police Department spokesman said.

Shortly after noon, officers arrested the 28-year-old man, who is from Flint Hill, Va., after he attempted to enter City Hall with the hammer and began using profanity in the lobby, police said. Officers there told him to leave and called Central District officers, who arrived at the scene and questioned the man outside, police said. Agency spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the man then made "several threats against police officers," and was taken to the city's homicide unit for questioning.
