TULSA, Okla. - A man is in custody Tuesday after police say he used nunchucks to attack a QuikTrip security guard.
Tulsa police arrested 65-year-old Maxie Dean at the QuikTrip near Admiral and Sheridan around 1 :30 a.m.
Police say Dean was belligerent, refused to listen to the security guard on-site, then assaulted the security guard with a pair of nunchucks.
Officers say the security guard responded by pepper-spraying Dean then holding him at gunpoint until police could get to the scene.
Dean is in jail facing charges for assault with a dangerous weapon and carrying a weapon.
FOX23 learned two months prior to this arrest, Dean had been arrested after threatening police officers with nunchucks -- but did not assault them in that incident.
QuikTrip says they commend the security guard for properly handling the situation.
