ATLANTA —

Chamblee police in Georgia don't believe there's a credible threat after they say a 31-year-old Atlanta man said he would "slay" an officer "in the name of Allah and ISIS."

The incident is alleged to have happened at Follies Strip Club on Saturday afternoon, when Rafielle Kirkland refused to leave, according to police.

Police believe he was intoxicated and not actually affiliated with the terrorist group.

"He was just making threats,” Capt. Ernesto Ford told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday. “There’s no credible threat."

Warrants say Kirkland also produced a badge and claimed to be a National Security Agency agent.

He is accused of trying to fight employees of the Buford Highway club, as well as police. 

Another man, Anthony Marquize Mason, was also involved and bit an officer, the warrants say.

The incident "involved five officers and took more than an hour to control," an officer wrote.

Kirkland remained in jail Thursday, charged with terroristic threats and impersonating an officer, among other counts.
