On 17 Jan 2020 Deputy Brown, along with numerous deputies, responded to 20470 State Route 60, Waterford, OH, in reference to a report of a man with a knife. Christopher Drayer reported Michael Diamond, a disgruntled employee, was walking around the parking lot with a knife.  Drayer stated Diamond was upset about work and paychecks and came to the business to discuss his concerns.  While talking, a verbal argument followed between the two, with Diamond taking hold of Drayer’s jacket close to Drayer’s throat. Diamond then produced a knife and brought it up in close proximity to Drayer’s throat. Drayer was able to get away from Diamond and call 911. Diamond stated to deputies that he was upset about his paycheck situation and stated he had quit yesterday. A knife in a sheath, with approximately a 3” in length blade, was observed on his waistline and was taken as evidence.  Diamond did advise that he pulled the knife out, but kept it down by his side, stating he did that in response to Drayer grabbing ahold of him.  Michael Lee Diamond, age 62, 555 Sandridge Road, Waterford, OH, was placed arrest for felonious assault and aggravated menacing, and transported to the Washington County Jail for processing.
