- A Marshfield man was arrested Friday after allegedly chasing two social workers with a knife according to Marshfield police.
Police responded to reports of a man with a knife at the 200 block of North Spruce Street. Police said Patrick J Langreck, 52, chased two social workers out of his home with a knife and then threw the knife at their vehicle when they were inside.
When police arrived, Langreck didn't comply with requests to drop the knife and refused to speak with officers. He eventually began walking towards two officers with two knives according to the press release.
Officers used less-lethal bean bag rounds and K9 "H" to defuse the situation.
Langreck was taken into custody safely and transported to Wood County Jail.
Langreck is on probation and four counts of Recklessly Endangering Safety were requested to the Wood County District Attorney.
