Lemink Mitchell was arrested Tuesday in Memphis, WHBQ-TV reported.

Memphis police said they were called to the home because Mitchell was threatening to kill his mom after she kicked him out. She wanted officers to get him out of the home, police said.

When officers arrived, they said he threatened to kill them, too.

Police said while they were talking to him, he started to cuss at them.

“He don’t give a (expletive) that officers are right here. He is going to do what he want to do,” he told the police.

He then rolled up some marijuana into a blunt before trying to escape, police said.

Court records said multiple people came out of their houses while he was running away. After a short chase, Mitchell was arrested.

Mitchell is facing multiple charges, including disorderly conduct and evading arrest.
