Kelly cited the Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul in a story by the Daily Mail. However, Kaul said it was unclear if Blake had the knife, which was found inside his car, on his person:
That knife was later recovered from the driver’s side floorboard of his SUV, but it’s unclear if Blake had it on him when he was talking to police...
During an investigation Blake admitted that he had a knife and agents recovered it from the driver’s side floorboard of his vehicle after opening fire...
Officials said Blake was either lunging for the knife on the floor board or it fell from his hand.
