BISMARCK, N.D. — Police say they’ve arrested a man waving a machete and yelling incoherently at a Walmart store in Bismarck.

Officers were called to the North Walmart about 11 a.m. Wednesday and tried to talk the man into putting down the machete. Police say the individual would not comply, so an officer used a stun gun to take him into custody.

The 25-year-old Bismarck man was arrested on a possible charge of terrorizing. No one was hurt.
