LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a man was arrested after a nearly 2-foot-long sword was found hidden in his cane as he tried to enter the Hall of Justice in Lincoln.

A security guard found the sword Thursday, and the man was booked into jail on an unrelated warrant and cited on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon.

Lancaster County authorities identified the man as 36-year-old Max Antoine. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on Antoine’s behalf.

Visitors aren’t allowed to take weapons into the building, which also houses the headquarters for Lincoln police, the Sheriff’s Office and the Lancaster County attorney’s office.
