Machete-Wielding Man Arrested

Wave a machete at people, spend some time in the slammer. 34-year-old Dylan Jones was arrested after an hour-long manhunt. Witnesses say he threatened them Sunday night on West Old Plank Road south of Columbia with the machete, and shoved a family member to the ground.

Boone County Sheriff’s Detective Tom O’Sullivan says alcohol played a large factor in the incident, and subsequent arrest.

No one was hurt, but Jones still faces charges for unlawful use of a weapon, second degree assault, and domestic assault. He’s in the Boone County Jail on a 19-thousand dollar bond.
