Man arrested after wielding knife, stabbing pool

TERRE HAUTE — A Terre Haute man was arrested Wednesday night after he used a knife to poke a hole in a swimming pool and threatened a person with the knife, police said.

Daniel J. Heffernan, 24, appeared in Vigo Superior Court 3 on Thursday where Detective Rick Decker of the Terre Haute Police Department stated that officers were called to the area of Kent Avenue and Sycamore Street at about 11 p.m.

When police arrived, they found Heffernan restrained on the ground. Witnesses said the man had displayed a knife and threatened to stab a person, and that Heffernan had poked a hole in a swimming pool with the knife and that water was running out of the pool.

Judge David Bolk found probable cause for Heffernan’s arrest on preliminary charges of public intoxication, criminal mischief and criminal recklessness. His next court date is set for Tuesday. His bail is set at $10,000 with no 10 percent allowed.
