TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A Florida State University (FSU) student is behind bars, after police say he pulled a knife on another student.

On July 12, 2015 at about 2:13am, FSU police say they were called out to Landis Hall for an assault. When they got there, they talked to night staff, who police say told them an FSU student, later identified as Michael Hensley, 19, had pulled a knife on another student and threatened him.

The officers went up to the room where the alleged assault took place, where they found Hensley, handcuffed him, and then escorted him to a police car when they say he became disorderly.

According to FSU PD, the officers began talking with the victim, who said he was him his friend's room, when Hensley walked in and asked the victim his name. The victim said he had met and talked to Hensley several times before, and began calling Hensley out for not remembering him. That's when the victim says Hensley started talking aggressively and pulled a knife on him.

At that point, the victim said he was able to get the knife away from Hensley and left the room.

Police say other witnesses confirmed the events, and one even captured it on cell phone video and provided it to police.

Hensley was taken to the Leon County Jail and is charged with aggravated assault without intent to kill.
