DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. -

A man threatened a lifeguard with a knife after he was told to stop taking pictures of women and teenage girls at the beach, according to an arrest report.

Andrew Shapiro, 54, was charged with aggravated assault and two counts of assault.

According to an arrest report, a City of Deerfield Beach lifeguard approached Shapiro on Sunday and asked him to stop taking pictures.

Shapiro reportedly then told the lifeguard, "I have a knife with me and you don't know what I will do to you. I will take you out."

Police said Shapiro then showed the knife to another lifeguard, who took it away from him. Shapiro also threatened another lifeguard.
