SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

Video from a cellphone led police to bring charges against a D Avenue man on Tuesday night.

Hank Matthew Harley, 47, was jailed on charges of communicating threats to his neighbor and to several police officers.

According to the police narrative, officers were called to respond to a report of a 911 call hang up at a residence in the 300 block of D Avenue. When police arrived they found a group of people standing outside in a yard and in the street.

Police say Harley, whom they described as "highly intoxicated,"  said that he had been threatened by his neighbor.

Police then talked to the neighbor who told them that Harley had threatened him with a knife. The neighbor then showed police video from his phone that they say backed up his claim.

Harley was heard on the video saying "I'm going to (expletive deleted) kill you," and a knife was seen, according to the report.

When officers attempted to arrest Harley, they say he became very combative.  They say he yelled back at the neighbor saying "I'll kill you when I get out," and also threatened to kill four police officers.

Once at the Magistrate's office, Harley began to complain of chest pains.  He was taken to the hospital and "quickly released with no ailments."

Harley was jailed under $2500 bond.
