Sheriff Jimmie Russell says that a cab driver called 911 a little bit after three this (12-30-08) morning to report that he had been threatened with a weapon.
The cabbie told cops that Ryan Kuhn told him he needed to go to an apartment complex on Waverly Road near Hollister; it was the same apartment that the driver had dropped a woman off earlier.
Once they arrived Kuhn allegedly told the driver that he needed to go inside to get some money, and instead returned waving a sword and dagger at him.
When Kuhn and his mother wouldn't come out of the apartment Sheriff Russell called the Sheriff's Response Team to go in and get the intoxicated man.
Kuhn has been charged with unlawful use of a weapon and remains in the Taney County jail on $20,000 bond.
