Witnesses told deputies the man and his father got into an argument and the man pushed his father to the ground, cutting both of his arms, according to the report.

While one deputy spoke with the father, the man began yelling at another deputy and walked over to the kitchen counter, slammed his hands on the counter, grabbed a steak knife and threatened to kill the deputy, according to the report.

The man was arrested and jailed to the Columbia County Detention Center.
