Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently responded to a dispute between a husband and wife on Maysville Rd. where the husband threatened to cut their property in half with a chainsaw.
The couple was intoxicated and had been arguing about their dog having been hit by a vehicle the previous day. During their argument, they discussed separating and the husband grabbed a chainsaw and threatened to cut all of their property in half. He turned the saw on and slightly damaged their couch. Both said he stopped when he realized he was acting “stupid.”
No charges were made and the husband agreed to stay somewhere else that night.
