Michael Scott Garrett, 34, of Berkeley, Calif., told a crowd he was going to stab each one of them in the head Saturday at Newport’s Loyalty Days & Sea Fair Festival.

According to a Newport Police Department news release, two people watching the 63rd annual Loyalty Days Parade took Garrett to the ground around noon after hearing the threats and held him until Newport Police could arrive and take him into custody. Garrett was brandishing a metal pick.

Garrett faces charges of unlawful use of a weapon, disorderly conduct and menacing.

He was taken to Lincoln County Jail with bail set at $135,000.
