A man is in jail facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assaulting a police officer. But it was what he told the Arlington Police Department officers that led them to contact the FBI.

When Wahib Sadek was being arrested, he claimed to be affiliated with the Islamic State, according to CBS News 11, Dallas-Fort Worth.

Two people flagged down an Arlington School Resource Officer at about 3:00 p.m. Tuesday to report an aggravated assault by a man believed to have been armed.

When the officer found a vehicle matching Sadek’s description and pulled it over, Sadek immediately exited his car and began approaching the officer in an aggressive manner.

When Sadek refused to follow the officer’s instructions, he used a taser to incapacitate him, and with the help of two bystanders was finally able to handcuff him.

Several firearms were found in Sadek’s vehicle, and he had reportedly threatened a woman with a knife.

The FBI is still looking into his claims of Islamic State affiliation and agents with the bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives have also been brought in.

Sadek apparently never considered this when he approached a Texas law enforcement officer in a threatening manner.
