LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities in Las Vegas say a 43-year-old man told them he wanted to carry out a copycat attack on police at a Cici's Pizza restaurant just days after two officers were fatally shot in one of the pizzerias.
An indictment handed up this week accuses Brian Lee Jones of intimidating an officer and resisting an officer on June 14, six days after the killings of officers Igor Soldo and Alyn Beck.
Police say Jones' mother had called them saying her son was refusing to leave the house. Officers say that when they arrived, Jones brandished a pocket knife and asked police to kill him.
Police say Jones eventually surrendered, but told the arresting officer that "next time you're at Cici's I hope I'm there so you'll be dead."
