Man With Machete Threatens Police Officers


Officers in Florida lived some scary moments after a man with a machete walked into a police station.

The Fort Myers Police Department has released surveillance video of its lobby from Wednesday morning.

Police say the 20-year-old man entered the building, asked to speak to an officer and then sat down.

The video shows that quickly changed, when the officers noticed he was armed.

The man stood up and then threatened the officers with the machete.

Several policemen jumped into action and were able to subdue and arrest the man after he was tased.

There's no word on his motive.
