Man arrested after waving knife around on State Street

A man was arrested Wednesday morning after waving a seven-inch knife near State Street.

Andrew Fischer, 36, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct while armed, resisting and obstructing and on a warrant, Madison Police Department Public Information Officer Joel DeSpain said in an incident report.

A 22-year-old woman called MPD around 8:30 a.m. after seeing Fischer pull out a switchblade at the intersection of West Gilman Street and State Street. Fischer was swinging the spring-loaded knife around “as if he was practicing for a knife fight,” DeSpain said.

“I thought he was going to go off and attack someone!” the woman told police.
MPD located and arrested Fischer, who admitted to pulling the knife out, but said he was not trying to hurt anyone.
