CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A man was arrested in Cedar Rapids during the Freedom Festival fireworks show for swearing and drawing a knife.

Police say Aaron Secor yelled swear words at America and raised his middle finger just after 10 p.m. as the National Anthem played.

After members of the audience became upset with him, police say Secor pulled out a knife.

When officers arrived, Secor had put the knife back in his pocket.

He was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and taken to the Linn County Jail.
