A Cartersville man is accused of pulling a knife on two people in the Walmart parking lot during an argument about a possible vehicle trade.
A Villa Rica High School student, Ander Jack Jenkins, 17, called 911 about 6:30 p.m. Thursday, which was Halloween, to report Daniel Lee Cross, 22, of Evergreen Trail in Cartersville, had wielded a knife after the two could not agree on the terms of the trade and began to argue.
"(Cross) aggressively pulled a black, folding pocket knife from his pocket and opened it, swinging it toward (the teen and his friend) while yelling, 'I'll take care of y'all right now,'" a deputy wrote in the Bartow County Sheriff's Office incident report, above.

The two apparently were going to trade Cross' white 1988 Ford truck with lifted suspension for Jenkins' gray 1989 Ford Mustang.
Authorities notices skid marks in the parking lot in front of and to the right of the parked Mustang, and Jenkins admitted to "cutting donuts" outside Walmart in the presence of his friends.
Witnesses said Jenkins drove the car in a circular and zig-zag motion, causing the skid marks. He was cited for laying drags and released.
Cross allegedly told police he pulled a knife out of his pocket, but was handing it to a friend, and didn't mean to threaten the two occupants of the Mustang, although he understood how his actions could be perceived as such.
He was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault.
