10-1-13 ax-wielding nfdl man arrested
A North Fond du Lac man armed with an ax has been arrested and faces multiple charges. North Fond du lac police chief Darren Pautsch says police received a call early Sunday morning that a man was carrying an ax in the area of Audrey Court and Polk Street and was stating someone inside the apartment complex was killing people. When an officer arrived on the scene and ordered the man to drop the ax, the man initially raised the ax over his head, then dropped the ax and took off running. He was arrested following a short foot chase. The 23 year old man told police that the tenants of an upstairs apartment shot and killed a boy and girl in his apartment and were now after him. Police searched the man’s apartment and found no one shot inside. The man was transported to the Health Care Center. He faces charges of recklessly endangering safety, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct.
