Largo man charged with threatening victims with throwing knives

LARGO —- A Largo man was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault Thursday after he "twirled and waved" a throwing knife at a group of people at an apartment complex, police said. Bradly Donavon Bright, 21, was the victim of a battery on Thursday night, police said. He then returned to his apartment to seek friends to help him confront the person who battered him. One of the friends later told police that Bright "armed himself with multiple throwing knives." He then went to an apartment at 6550 150th Ave. N., he "displayed the knife, which he twirled and waved in the air while approximately 15 feet away" from a group of victims, according to an arrest affidavit filed by the Largo Police Department. "Both victims were in fear the defendant could have thrown the knives at them," the affidavit stated. Bright later said he only had a pocket knife and had not brandished it. He was being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
