A man was Tasered and arrested after allegedly wielding two large knives outside a town centre pub.
Officers were called to the premises in King Street, Gravesend, and seized two weapons from a man who was reportedly acting aggressively.
He was arrested after refusing to drop the knives, officers said, who used a Taser to detain him.
It happened at 11.10pm on August 21.
Matthew Young, of Wellington Street, Gravesend, was charged with possession of a bladed article in a public place.
The 45-year-old was bailed to appear at Medway Magistrates' Court on September 22.
In a tweet, Kent Police Gravesham said: "Another example of the risks officers face each day to keep the public safe."
