    A 40-year-old man was arrested for allegedly threatening a News 12 Long Island reporter with a knife, authorities say. 

    Reporter Virginia Huie and her crew had gone to the Levittown home of Jeremy Henggeler Monday to interview him about a controversial Facebook post about an FDNY firefighter's funeral procession, according to News 12. 

    Henggeler was in his garage when they got there, and when Huie went up to speak to him, he allegedly showed a knife and threatened her. 

    The news crew left and notified police, who arrested Henggeler. He was charged with menacing and criminal possession of a weapon. Information on an attorney for him wasn't immediately available.
