COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A man is facing misdemeanor charges after threatening officers who came to arrest him east of downtown Colorado Springs early Wednesday morning.
Police said around 12:40 a.m., they got a call about a suspicious person in the front yard of a home on East Costilla Street near the intersection with El Paso Street. The resident told police the man was screaming obscenities and stabbing a soda can with a screwdriver or knife.
