A HELICOPTER took the skies above Solihull as police investigated reports of a man brandishing a weapon.
Officers from Solihull Police, West Midlands Police’s specialist firearms unit and a helicopter from the National Police Air Service (NPAS) in Birmingham were called to reports of a disturbance and a man possibly brandishing a weapon on Wharf Lane at around 9.15am on Wednesday, July 27.
Officers attended the location to carry out enquiries and arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of assault and drink driving.
No weapons were found.
