During the stop, Logan is alleged to have threatened the initial officer multiple times stating he would beat up the officer.

The officer requested additional assistance and when the units arrived, Logan is also alleged to have threatened the responding officers and claimed he would beat them up as well. According to the affidavit, as Logan was walking away he told one of the officers to “make sure you wear your vest at all times.” It is noted in the affidavit, Logan has had other interactions with police officers where Logan had a handgun in his possession with a high-capacity magazine.
