Sunday was plagued by several incidents involving weapons and commercial burglaries in Lodi, police said.

Someone fired gunshots in the air during a fight at a large party at 2:51 a.m. Sunday, and a man threatened several people with a dagger Sunday afternoon, police said.

At the large party, Skyler Spiegelmire of Lodi, 22, was arrested on suspicion of firing gunshots into the air on the 1400 block of Voelker Drive, southwest of Kettleman and Cherokee lanes. No one was injured, police said.

Spiegelmire was arrested on suspicion of negligent discharge of a firearm and public intoxication, police said.

At about 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Trevon Packer of Lodi, 24, was arrested on suspicion of possessing a concealed dagger and brandishing a weapon, police said.

Packer was walking in the area of Tokay and South Sacramento streets when witnesses said he threatened to stab someone in a passing car and several pedestrians, police said.
