DARIEN — A New Jersey man was arrested after agitating others at a company party by picking up kitchen knives following an argument over a woman.
According to police, David Hobbs, 27, of Hamilton, New Jersey was at a company party at 4 Morley Lane when he got into an argument with several other partygoers in the kitchen. Hobbs was allegedly upset with the other attendants over a woman at the party. At one point during the argument, Hobbs claimed that another partygoer threatened him by saying he had $4,000 and duct tape and could make Hobbs disappear. Following this, Hobbs picked up some knives, which he then took into another room. He did not threaten anyone, but his actions alarmed and annoyed the other partygoers.
At 4:38 a.m., police were summoned to the party over the incident. They did not find the knives in Hobbs’ possession upon arrival, but found them on the mantle behind him. After taking statements from the other party guests, Hobbs was arrested for disorderly conduct. He was brought to police headquarters and processed. He was released on a $250 bond and given a court date of Aug. 31.
