Paul Bratton, 37, 6100 block Mason Road, went to the municipal court with his wife on the morning of Oct. 28, with his spring-release pocket knife in tow, according to a Sandusky police report.
Bratton took the weapon from his pocket when he went through the facility’s metal detector, and Sandusky officers promptly charged him with the concealed weapons violation, the report said.
Bratton then immediately walked over to the court to appear before Judge Erich O’Brien on his charge, Bratton said.
At the request of the prosecutor, his charge was dismissed, according to court documents. His knife, meanwhile, was confiscated by the police department, the documents stated.
