LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in Michigan’s capital city say police arrested a man who threatened paramedics with a sword when they responded to an emergency at his house.

Lansing police say paramedics went to the house about 1 a.m. Tuesday for a man having a seizure. The paramedics say another man threatened them with a sword but they were able to get out with their patient.

Police say their officers arrived and arrested 31-year-old Michael D. King Jr. They say that as they were making the arrest, 30-year-old Tommy L. King threatened them with a weapon.

Police say they arrested Tommy King as well. Both were arraigned Tuesday on weapons charges and return to district court Friday for pre-exam conferences. It’s unknown if they have lawyers.
