Chesterfield Police Chief Kyle Wilson says 43-year-old Brian Friedman was arrested Friday and charged with creating false public alarm and other offenses.

The chief says Friedman called police on April 8 to say that he had just been confronted and stabbed by a man in his garage. He said the man told him, “I’m going to set you free” before running away.

Wilson says Friedman had some wounds that are now believed to have been self-inflicted.

Friedman is free on bail and did not return a message left at his home.
