A man accused of threatening to kill people with a machete is in jail.

Police were called to deal with 42-year-old Norm Osteen around midnight on Monday. Police said he was waving a machete outside an apartment complex near 81st and Yale.

Officers say Osteen refused to drop the weapon and threatened an officer, so they used a taser on him.

He's being held on complaints of domestic violence and assaulting an officer.

Unwashed mass (dirty sermon) #8 ^]]. He does not look too much the worse for the wear. Hit them with that taser and they find a new language to say uncle.

"Assaulting an officer" means they beat him up. That's why we have dashcam video.
