A 20-year-old man arrested in Lincoln on Thursday gave new meaning to the term “heavily armed.”

The man was carrying an ax and a baseball bat about 2 p.m. near 28th and N Streets when he was stopped by a Lincoln police officer.

He told the officer that he also had a concealed weapon on him and pulled a machete with an 18-inch blade out of his pant leg. The officer then searched the man and found that he also was carrying “multiple concealed knives.”

The man was cited on suspicion of carrying concealed weapons.
