Hooksett police were called to 8 Whitehall Terrace at 4:17 p.m. Sunday on a report of two men arguing, with one displaying a knife. Upon arrival police separated the two, then located and seized a 4-inch butterfly knife in the garage.

Jackson was arrested and charged with criminal threatening, a class “B” felony. He was released on $7,000 personal recognizance, with arraignment in the Sixth Circuit Court in Hooksett scheduled for Oct. 9.
