A Brookfield man could face a felony charge after brandishing a knife and threatening to slit the throat of a motorist who suspected he was driving drunk and called the police, according to a city of Brookfield police report.

Also in the report:

The 21-year-old man pulled over on 162nd Street, near Capitol Drive, and approached another car with a knife.

The 21-year-old believed the driver of that car had cut him off and told him he was going to slit somebody's throat.

He then ran off and was arrested a short time later on a tentative charge of endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon.
