Global News journalist tackles saw-wielding man outside Ghomeshi courthouse

Charges including assault and making death threats have been laid after a bizarre incident outside the Jian Ghomeshi trial courthouse that police say saw a man threateningly wave a saw before being tackled to the ground by a Global News journalist.
The man was outside the Old City Hall courthouse around 7 a.m. Friday — hours before the disgraced radio star’s trial convened — when he began swearing and indicated he had a weapon, police said.
 It’s alleged the man pulled a bladeless saw from a bag, started wielding it and began talking about a gun when Global News online reporter Adam Miller, who was lining up to cover the trial, wrestled him to the ground.
