According to charging documents, Westminster police responded to a report of two men fighting Wednesday at a residence on Pennsylvania Avenue. When an officer arrived, Wadsworth had allegedly fled the scene. The other man said he and Wadsworth had been in a verbal argument when Wadsworth grabbed him and tried to throw him over a second-story balcony, the documents state. The man punched him in retaliation and Wadsworth then brandished a knife, he told police.

Other witnesses in the area also described a physical altercation in which Wadsworth pulled out a knife, the documents state. Another officer found Wadsworth in the area and found that he had a pocketknife, a kitchen knife, and one additional knife in his possession, according to the documents. He was then arrested.
