OGDEN, Utah — An Ogden man is being held without bail after threatening to kill police officers who were attempting to arrest him Friday night.

According to a probable cause statement, officers were called to the Zephyr Grill located at the UTA station at 2325 South Wall Avenue.

Employees told officers a man, later identified as 22-year-old Kaden Michael Hunter, had asked for a cup for water. Instead, he filled it with soda, grabbed a bag of chips from the counter, and left the store.

Two employees confronted Hunter in the parking lot and told him he needed to pay for the items.

Hunter threw the contents of the soda at one of the employees and made a fist and lunged at one of the employees.

No one was injured, but as Hunter left, he pushed over a motorcycle that was parked, causing damage to the bike.

Ogden Police officers located Hunter near 2350 South Grant Avenue a short time later.

He told the officers they would need more to take him into custody and that he was going to kill them.

While attempting to take Hunter into custody, he physically resisted the officers according to the court documents.

Hunter was booked into the Weber County Jail on suspicion of second degree felony robbery, as well as misdemeanor charges of criminal mischief, threat of violence and interference with an arresting officer.

Hunter was ordered to be held without bail.

FOX 13 requested the booking photo for Hunter, but received this email around 8:45 a.m. Monday:

Mr. Hunter appears to still be too uncooperative to have a photo taken. When his behavior improves and we are able to take his mug shot safely, we can get it to you.
Thank you.
