The complaint says some members barricaded themselves in a back room and others lured Edmond outside, where officers found him holding the knife and restrained him with a stun gun.

Edmond is charged with brandishing, threatening terrorist acts and assaulting an officer. He’s in jail on a $50,000 bond.

It’s unclear if Edmond has an attorney.
