HANNIBAL, Mo. — A Hannibal man faces multiple charges after fighting Tuesday with a Hannibal Police Department officer.
At approximately 11:58 a.m., an officer with the Hannibal Police Department conducted a traffic stop in the 100 block of South Arch. Robert A. Culp, 44, of Hannibal was in the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. Culp fought with the officer as the officer attempted to detain him.
Another male in the area attempted to keep the officer from detaining Culp, who grabbed a knife from his pocket. The officer kept Culp from opening the blade, so Culp threw his knife in the direction of the other male and told him repeatedly to kill the officer. Additional HPD officers responded to the scene and took Culp and the other male into custody.
The 10th Judicial Circuit Court of Marion County issued a warrant Wednesday for Culp. He is charged with second degree assault, armed criminal action and resisting arrest. His bond was set at $100,000. Culp remains in the Marion County Jail.
