COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) -

A Colquitt County man is facing several charges after police said that he threatened to kill officers who arrested him. 

28-year-old Joshua Bennett was arrested last week after his mother told police he punched her and threatened her with a knife. 

Officers said that while they were arresting him, Bennett attempted to run away. 

He's accused of kicking one officer in his groin and telling both officers he would kill them and their families after he was released from jail. 

Bennett is charged with obstruction, terroristic threats and battery.
