A man was arrested in Lancaster after he assaulted his spouse and waved a large machete at deputies, authorities said Monday.
Police received a call about a family disturbance at about 8:20 p.m. Sunday in the 44300 block of Standridge Avenue, said Lt. Harold Morrow of the Sheriff’s Lancaster Station.
When deputies arrived, they found a man outside waving a machete, Morrow said.
“Deputies were able to get control of him and ultimately arrest him. There was a Taser used,” he said.
The man was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and spousal assault, the lieutenant said. It wasn’t clear if he had used the machete to attack his wife.
