A man wielding a knife and wooden baton was arrested at a campaign rally for President Trump in Maine Wednesday where South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem appeared.
Peter Beitzell, 58, allegedly harassed attendees while holding the weapons at a campaign in Bangor, Maine.
The South Dakota governor “was not in harm’s way” at any point, according to ABC News. Her security detail engaged the man at one point.
Beitzell eventually returned to his car and put his weapons away. He was charged with criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct, and posted $200 bail.
Beitzell, who doesn’t like Trump, said things heated up when he flipped off a Trump bus driving by.
He said he displayed weapons when he felt threatened by three men who were approaching him.
“Yes, I was an idiot,” Beitzell said. “I was a dummy who pulled a weapon, but there were three of them marching over toward me,” he added.

World Series Viewers Fall 30% in Latest Sign of Sports Weakness
Major League Baseball’s World Series, won by the Los Angeles Dodgers for the first time since 1988, drew an average of 9.79 million TV viewers over six nights, a 30% decline from the seven games last year.
The audience for U.S. baseball’s annual championship has been falling since the late 1970s and early 1980s, when 40 million or more people regularly tuned in.
Sports of all stripes have seen viewer numbers decline due in part to the coronavirus, which forced many of them to play shortened seasons and compete with one another for TV viewers at the same time.
Viewers also have been more focused on TV news — whether it’s coverage of the presidential election or the global pandemic. And protests against law enforcement by players may have turned some fans away.
The Dodgers beat the Tampa Bay Rays four games to two in a series that was played on the neutral ground of the new Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.Fox Corp., which aired the series on its main broadcast network, reported the Nielsen ratings Wednesday in a statement.
Live sports was once viewed as a sure thing in a broadcast TV world increasingly losing viewers to online streaming and other forms of entertainment. But this year, the audience for the NBA finals slumped 51% and it tumbled 61% for the NHL’s Stanley Cup championship.
Supreme Court Allows North Carolina Ballot-Receipt Extension
The U.S. Supreme Court left intact a six-day extension for absentee ballots to be received in North Carolina, rejecting Republican calls to block changes imposed by a Democratic-controlled state elections board.
The vote was 5-3, with Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito saying they would have blocked the extension.
New Justice Amy Coney Barrett didn’t take part. A Supreme Court spokeswoman said the reason was the need for prompt action and a lack of time to review the case.
Australia And New Zealand Banking FY Profit Down 40%
Australia And New Zealand Banking Group Ltd.(ANZ.AX,ANZBY.PK,ANZ) announced statutory profit after tax for the full year ended 30 September 2020 of A$3.58 billion, down 40% on the prior comparable period.
Cash profit for its continuing operations was A$3.76 billion, down 42% on the prior comparable period.
The decrease was primarily driven by full year credit impairment charges of A$2.74 billion, which increased from prior year due to the impact of COVID-19 and a first half impairment of Asian associates of A$815 million, also related to the pandemic.
ANZ Chief Executive Shayne Elliott said,”We could never have forecast 2020, a year that started with devastating bushfires in Australia and unwound with the waves of a pandemic that continues today. While we still cannot predict its course, we remain confident we can deal with its impacts.”
The company announced a proposed 2020 final dividend of 35 cents per share which will be paid to shareholders on Wednesday, 16 December 2020.
The Dividend Reinvestment Plan and Bonus Option Plan will continue to operate in respect of the 2020 final dividend without a discount, the company said.
Jerry’s Deli In Studio City, Which Once Had Andy Kaufman As A Busboy, To Close Friday
The original Studio City location for Jerry’s Famous Deli has announced it will close on Friday.
The New York-style deli, located at 21853 Ventura Blvd., opened in 1973 as an outpost of Solley’s Delicatessen. It was purchased in 1996 by Jerry’s Famous Deli Inc., based in Studio City. The location, adjacent to a bowling alley, was the scene of many celebrity sightings and was patronized by Adam Sandler, Will Smith and the Seinfeld cast, among others.
Comedian Andy Kaufman used to bus tables at the restaurant at the height of his fame on the television show Taxi. Kaufman would stay in character as a humble busboy, always denying that he was Kaufman.
The Jerry’s in Studio City joins the fallen other locations in the chain. Within the last year, Jerry’s closed closed locations in Woodland Hills, Marina del Rey and West Hollywood, as well as one in Miami Beach.
