SAN ANTONIO -- A man was taken into custody after police say they found him in a school parking lot with a bayonet and body armor.
A Northside ISD Police Department officer was sent to Clark High School in the 5100 block of De Zavala around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday for a "distraught individual." When the officer arrived, he saw a man in the school parking lot trying to attach a bayonet with a brass knuckles handle to his belt. The officer also spotted several edged weapons around the man's vehicle as well as two set of Kevlar Body Armor, ceramic strike plates, and numerous pictures of an unidentified young girl.
A police report states that as the officer approached, the man knelt go the ground and called the officer an "Avenger." The officer was able to handcuff and take the man into custody with resistance.
While questioning the man, the officer found out he had some marijuana with him. The officer said the man's speech was irrational, that he continued to make references to fictional characters from comic books and movies, and showed signs of paranoia.
The man was taken to University Hospital for further evaluation.
