In speaking with Grayson, the officer learned that a sword was in the back seat of the vehicle.
Then the officer saw a knife clipped on Grayson's left front pocket.
He was removed from the vehicle and it was thoroughly searched.
Inside the center console, officers found a brass knuckle/knife combination, two fixed blade knives, a folding knife and a credit card knife.
On the front passenger floor was another Gerber fixed-blade knife.
In the back seat area, officers found a tomahawk, bayonet, machete and a sword.
Grayson was placed under arrest and taken to the Solon Jail where he was held on bond.
Grayson posted the $500 bond later that morning and is scheduled to appear in Bedford Municipal Court at 9 a.m. May 28 on carrying concealed weapons charges.
