WHITEHALL - Police arrested 28-year-old Gregory Matteson on two counts of DWI and another count of menacing.

Matteson allegedly went to a West Street Home and threatened another man with a knife, and then left.

Police say Matteson had a BAC of .23 and had young children in the car, which makes the DWI charge, a felony under Leandra's Law.
