DeKALB – DeKalb police said they arrested a heavily intoxicated man with a knife Tuesday afternoon after he was spotted acting strangely at the Buena Vista Golf Course.

Dylan Blackstone, 20, of the 1100 block of Rushmore Drive in DeKalb, was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of alcohol by a minor after officers tracked him down at the corner of Bethany Road and First Street after a roughly 20-minute search, police said.

DeKalb Police Cmdr. John Petragallo said a resident who lives along the golf course called police around 2 p.m. after spotting Blackstone acting strangely as he walked across the golf course with a knife.

Blackstone then crossed over onto a bike path and through a neighborhood before officers located him at the intersection where he was arrested, Petragallo said.

As a precautionary measure, DeKalb schools were notified when officers received the call, Petragallo said, but Blackstone did not threaten anyone.
