Armed man arrested at radio station

HOUSTON According to station officials, there was a disturbance on 90.1 FM /*KPFT*/ premises in the early morning hours today, involving a knife-wielding individual attempting to gain access to the building.

The individual in question arrived on station property and demanded access. After being rebuffed, he became agitated and punched out one of the window panes on the back door. He lost the weapon he was carrying when he punched through the glass.

He was apprehended without resistance and arrested. Police said the man did not express a motive or intent to harm those on property. Programmers, as well as police on site, each reported the man was incoherent.

This incident comes as the one-year anniversary approaches of a still-unsolved drive-by shooting that occurred at KPFT in August 2007.
