A Verona man was arrested after an altercation involving a knife at a Bloomfield Avenue business.

A 22-year-old Verona man was arrested and charged with assault after allegedly brandishing a knife at employees at the Verona Inn, police said.  

Thomas McMahon was arrested and charged with simple assault, possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes and defiant trespass after the Dec. 29 incident, according to police. 

Police responded to Verona Inn Dec. 29 on a report of an employee who was threatened with a knife, police said.

An employee told police that McMahon had been asked to leave the business several times but continued to return.

“After being escorted from the business the suspect then threatened the employees with the knife,” police said.

McMahon was then arrested and taken to police headquarters where he was released after posting bail.

What the hell was Mc Mahon thinking! He was in that man's establishment and pulled a knife and threatened the owner/employee.Most establishments have a pistol under the counter/bar to LEGALLY protect themselves from hold-ups.Was it Clint Eastwood that said,"Don't ever take a knife to a gun fight" It may have turned out very bad(much worse than it is now) for McMahon!!!!!
