WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police have arrested a man they say threatened the staff at a Wilmington casino.
    
Troopers say about 11 p.m. Sunday, a man demanded that a security officer at Delaware Park Casino take one of his relatives out of the casino. Police say the man threatened to go to the casino with an assault rifle.
    
Authorities say they found the man in the casino parking lot next to his car. Troopers say they searched the man and found a magazine containing 20 rounds of ammunition in his pocket. Police say a search of his car turned up an assault rifle.
    
Twenty-eight-year-old Brandon Buchanan of Wilmington was charged with reckless endangering and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He is being held on $62,350 cash bond.
