Former football star Michael Strahan now has a couple TV gigs and when he was in Times Square this week, he came a little too close to danger.

According to the New York Post, police arrested a man named Andre Johnson who was carrying knife. Johnson told police that he was there to “kill Michael Strahan.”

Johnson got into an argument with the security guard and pulled the knife out, threatening to make matters worse. A nearby police officer reacted quickly and knocked the knife out of his hand.

Luckily, Strahan was never in any immediate danger. In fact, he didn’t even know this happened until later that day.

An NYPD spokesperson said that it was a scary situation was because the cop acted fast, the situation was under control.
