A Bradyville man who was allegedly swinging a machete during a dispute with neighbors was arrested on Nov. 12 by the Cannon County Sheriff's Department.
Deputy Reed Bryson was dispatched to 6216 Dug Hollow Rd., Lot #24 in reference to a subject being intoxicated and waving a knife around.
Upon his arrival, Deputy Bryson observed that Sheriff Darrell Young and Detective James Davis were already at the scene and speaking with a man in the front yard.
Det. Davis handed Deputy Bryson a machete as he approached, which he secured in his patrol unit.
Deputy Bryson then came into contact with Lonnie Bain, who stated that he was attempting to leave the residence and that the neighbors and residents at Lot #24 became upset and tried to pick a fight with him. Bain said he went and got the weapon and swung it around.
Deputy Bryson then conferred with Det. Davis, who said that he had spoken with the other parties involved and that Bain was allegedly the person who began the fight.
Deputy Bryson spoke with Bain again, and observed he was uneasy on his feet, his eyes were watery and bloodshot, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong smell of an intoxicant about his person.
Bain told Deputy Bryson he was trying to leave and everyone got mad at him because he wouldn't be paying the bills anymore.
After consulting with other officers, Deputy Bryson charged Bain with Disorderly Conduct and Public Intoxication. He was transported to the CCSD for processing.
Bond was set at $500. Initial court date is Dec. 7.
