Police: Man threatened to decapitate neighbor with machete

LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man is being held on $10,000 bail after authorities say he threatened to cut off his neighbor’s head with a machete unless he turned down his music.

The Sun reports that Michael Leone pleaded not guilty Monday to charges including threat to commit a crime and assault with a dangerous weapon over Sunday’s confrontation.

Police responded to a call from a man who said his machete-brandishing neighbor had threatened to cut off someone’s head unless he turned down his music.

Officers went to Leone’s home where they found a machete and a .22- caliber rifle along with a 30-round magazine.

Leone’s attorney argued for lower bail, saying her client was cooperative with police, telling them he was in a “bad mood” when the music woke him.
