A man who had been arrested for carrying knives inside the Greeneville Police Department last month was arrested after reportedly making threats toward law enforcement Sunday afternoon.

31-year-old Darius Brown of Knoxville was on the phone with police and reportedly began making several threats toward a religious organization and the children of law enforcement. Brown told police he was at the Lee's Food Mart on West Summer Street and was located just before 3:45 Sunday afternoon.

Brown was charged with filing a false report and retaliation for past action and taken to the Greene County Detention Center to await a court appearance this morning.

On May 23, Brown went to the Police Department armed with two knives and was involved in a standoff with officers for about 30 minutes before cooperating. He was charged with aggravated assault in that incident and was next due in court on September 4.
