A 46-year-old Paris man accused of threatening another person with a machete during a child custody dispute was taken into custody Wednesday.
Donnell Sims of 1401 E. Price St. was arrested about 8:30 a.m. in the 300 block of West Center Street on a felony warrant charging him with aggravated assault and criminal trespass, police department spokesman Curtis Garrett said.
Sims is alleged to have waved the machete on Sept. 15.
He was placed in the Lamar County Jail on $24,000 bond — $20,000 on the charge of aggravated assault and $4,000 on the charge of criminal trespass with a deadly weapon.
Garrett said police responded to 99 calls for service on Wednesday, resulting in 10 arrests.
