•At 11:45 p.m. police were called to Third and Johnson streets on a report of a male subject who had sprayed two people with pepper spray and was threatening people with a knife. Witnesses told police that Casey Ray Kanz, 26, of Winona, was with a female who started talking to a male friend, then gave him a hug. Kanz then allegedly became upset and got into a shoving match with the male victim. Witnesses said he then pulled out a can of pepper spray and sprayed the man. When a second man tried to intervene, Kanz allegedly sprayed him too, then pulled out a folding knife and allegedly pointed it at several people. When police arrived, Kanz allegedly struggled with officers trying to arrest him. He was referred to the county attorney for potential charges of second degree assault, obstructing the legal process, fifth degree possession of a controlled substance and ineligible person in possession of tear gas. Police said they found a prescription Alprazolam pill in his pocket, and that since he has been convicted of a violent crime he should not have possessed or used the pepper spray, which contained an ingredient considered tear gas.
