SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - Bond has been set at $10,000 for a man who allegedly tried to kill a police sergeant in Superior.
30-year-old Gregory Thompson is charged in Douglas County with attempted homicide, disarming a police officer, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.
Authorities said the sergeant was trying to get Thompson out of his mother's house on Tuesday, when the man pulled a large concealed knife on him. Officials said Thompson was drunk and belligerent at the time -- and he tried several times to grab the officer's gun, and he resisted being handcuffed.
Police said he was pepper-sprayed and subdued -- and after that, he reportedly admitted that he was trying to kill the officer who arrested him.
