JACKSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

Deputies say a man faces weapons related charges after an incident at a bar in rural DeSoto, Illinois on Friday night.

According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, 40-year-old Chance W. "Slick" Townsend was arrested Friday night on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear for speeding 40+ over the speed limit. 

He was also charged with unlawful use of a weapon (possession of a dangerous weapon in establishment licensed to sell intoxication beverages), unlawful use of a weapon (possession of metal knuckles), and unlawful use of a weapon (possession of dangerous knives with intent to use).

Deputies say they received a call shortly before 10:30 on Friday night that Townsend was in Club Coyote in rural DeSoto on North U.S. Highway 61 carrying several knives and possibly a handgun.

Employees reportedly talked to Townsend about the knives, and deputies say Townsend became aggressive and threatened violence against them. 

Deputies say it was reported Townsend was wearing colors indicating he was affiliated with the Outlaws Motorcycle Club.

According to the sheriff's office, Townsend had three large fixed blade sheath knives on or in his belt. Deputies say no handgun was found, and a gun was inferred but never displayed.

Townsend was taken to the Jackson County Jail.
