Knoxville (WVLT) -- A man is in jail after Knoxville police say he took his two children and threatened to kill them.

It began about 3:00 AM at the Family Inn on Merchants Drive.

The mother brought the children to visit their dad who didn't have custody.

Two of the grandparents then showed up tried to prevent the visit.

That's when, they say, the feather took the kids and fled the hotel.

Police considered putting out an Amber Alert, but they located the kids just after 7:00 AM at a nearby McDonald's.

They're with children's services tonight.
