Arguments between employees at two Jefferson businesses resulted in knives being drawn, according to reports.
Jefferson police investigated the first incident on May 13 at a plant on Hwy. 129 North where two employees got into an argument in a parking lot.
As the argument escalated, one employee told the other “I’m going to whoop your a--.” The employee who received the threat went to his vehicle, pulled out a knife and started walking toward the man, according to the incident report. No contact was made, and the man said he did not feel threatened by the weapon.
The employee accused of pulling the knife denied doing so. Witnesses, however, said they did see him carrying a knife.
The man who reportedly pulled the knife was fired from his job, according to the report.
One day later, Jefferson police fielded a phone call from a business on Logistics Center Pkwy. where an employee told his supervisor that another employee pulled a knife on him during an argument. The business told police it’s conducting an investigation, which includes reviewing surveillance footage to determine if the incident was captured on video.
