RPD Arrests Man Who Was Reportedly Threatening People With A Knife

A man with a knife was arrested at a Redding pizza parlor Friday evening. 60-year-old Michael Lane is accused of tampering with an employee’s car at Westside Pizza on North Market Street and then trying to enter the business with a knife in his hand. Employees locked the doors until police arrived. Lane reportedly dropped the knife but would not further comply with officers so they used a bean bag round and a taser. An officer was kicked as he was being taken into custody.
