\"A tough-talking 14-year-old boy got more than he bargained for after he allegedly waved a knife at a 46-year-old man outside the downtown Everett Library about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

According to witness statements, the man accidentally bumped the boy on the sidewalk outside the library. The man excused himself. The boy allegedly said, \"Darn right, you\'d better excuse yourself, old man,\" said Everett police Lt. Greg Lineberry.

The pair argued on the sidewalk until the boy allegedly threatened the man with a pocketknife. The man went into the library and called police. When he saw the boy follow him in, the man threw the boy to the ground and held him until police arrived.

Officers arrested the boy and booked him into the Denney Juvenile Justice Center on suspicion of second-degree assault.
