Lincoln Man Accused Of Holding Knife To Woman’s Throat

An bar argument ends with a man in custody facing charges that range from making terroristic threats to use of a weapon to commit a felony.
Just before 2 a.m., Police were called to near 1st and Adams for a car accident.  Officers saw two people arguing leaving the scene on foot.  Police talked to a 41 year old who said she was at a bar with 47 year old Paul Keating during the accident.  They had been at a bar and Keating had gotten into an argument with a woman at the bar.  The female with Keating broke up that argument and she convinced him to leave.
The woman was driving the car when apparently Keating pulled out a pocket knife and held the blade to her neck and threatened to kill her.  She then said Keating grabbed the steering wheel and pulled it to the right causing the vehicle to leave the road and crash.  Police saw marks on the woman’s neck.
witnesses also say they saw Keating throwing the knife in the bar at a wall earlier that night.  He was apparently refused service because he was intoxicated.
