A Belle Plaine police officer was dispatched to a weapons call at Huck’s Bar around 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 18.

According to the police report, 31-year-old Marlow Chevelle Blackwell, from Belle Plaine, allegedly came into Huck’s bar and was speaking loudly to an employee.

The reporting party allegedly told Blackwell to take it outside.

The reporting party then told  police that Blackwell threatened him and said he had a gun in his car.

An employee told police he heard Blackwell say he “had a gun in his car and if that didn’t work he had a hundred other black people to back him up,” according to the complaint.

Blackwell stated that “nothing happened and he didn’t make any threats,” according to the complaint.

He was taken to Scott County Jail.

 He now faces one felony-level charge for Terroristic Threats-Reckless Disregard of Risk. This has a maximum sentence of five years and/or a $10,000 fine.
