A Danbury man has been arrested on a number of charges after a steak knife fell out of his pocket while he struggled with a State Police Trooper.  Police were called by The 440 Line in New Fairfield Friday night on a report of an intoxicated man who caused a disturbance and then walked out of the restaurant. 

Troopers located 33-year old Gerad Michael Hitchcock on Route 39.  He got into a scuffle with the Trooper, who said Hitchcock reached for his pocket.  A black-handled, 6-inch blade fell out during the incident, in which Hitchcock had to be tasered. 

He was transported to Danbury Hospital. 

Hitchcock was arraigned and pleaded not guilty to carrying a dangerous weapon and two counts of breach of peace.  He was held on 25-hundred dollars bond and is due back in Court on July 17th. 

Hitchcock was arrested by Danbury Police on May 19th and 27th on breach of peace and threatening charges.
