    Naked man accused of threatening neighbors with sword

    By Mike McWilliams
    Iowa City Press-Citizen

    Police arrested a North Liberty man Sunday after he allegedly chased and threatened his neighbors with a sword while nude.

    Curtis Donald Rarick, 44, of 245 S. Front St., was charged with assault while displaying a dangerous weapon ( ), an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine upon conviction.

    According to police: Officers were called to a residence on Front Street for reports of an altercation. The victims told police Rarick was in his front yard naked and became upset when they told him to put some clothes on. Rarick then went inside his residence, retrieved a sword with a 2-foot 6-inch blade and chased and threatened his neighbors on their property.

    Rarick posted $2,000 bail and was released from Johnson County Jail Monday, court records show. Rarick’s home phone number is unlisted and court records did not indicate if Rarick has yet retained a lawyer.



    I just can't stop laughing at 'displaying a dangerous weapon'!

    Dangerous to be flashing a sword around in that state of dress.
