A 27-year-old man was arrested at Oakland International Airport on Sunday morning after he allegedly brandished a small knife he said he intended to use to harm a police officer, a spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said.

The man, whose name is being withheld pending formal charges, can be seen on surveillance video released by the Sheriff’s Department apparently looking into a parked patrol car.

Sgt. Ray Kelly said Sunday that “luckily our deputies were not in the car. They were out on foot patrol.”
