A 48-year-old Athens man was arrested after he reportedly behaved drunk and disorderly at the Multimodal Transportation Center on Hickory Street, Athens-Clarke County police said.
The victim reportedly told police that the alleged assailant tried to pick a fight with him and so he drew a knife to ward him off.
The suspect, who police said was highly intoxicated, was arrested. A subsequent search found that he had some pot, police said.
He was charged with public intoxication and possession of marijuana, police said.
