A man declined to press charges against his girlfriend after she brandished a knife and threatened to cut his head off, South Lake Tahoe police said.

The alleged brandishing occurred Sunday just before 7 p.m. at a Third Street address while the couple was arguing about money, police said. Police referred the case to the district attorney’s office, and the woman still might face charges, possibly including assault with a deadly weapon, brandishing a deadly weapon and threatening crime with intent to terrorize, police said.
