Homeless man to face charges over knife found in his bag



Are they kidding? Geeesh.

Charges were officially filed against Chynyquy Calixte, 48, on Friday for resisting arrest and carrying a concealed weapon, prosecutors said.

Calixte’s attorney said she was shocked that the charges were filed because the weapon is a steak knife found in his bike bag after he was handcuffed.

“It’s an ordinary household utensil, and unless used in a threatening manner it cannot be considered a weapon,” Assistant Public Defender Mary Ann Sharp said.

..

Calixte, who Sharp said is schizophrenic, has been arrested before because he refuses to talk.

..

Sharon Riehemann, the bank’s manager, said she ran across the bank’s parking lot yelling for an officer to stop punching Calixte, who has a savings account at the bank.
