James Earl Stephens was arrested on Friday night in Franklin County after he allegedly attacked a male victim with a machete.
Stephens, 63, apparently became upset with the victim and accused him of “taking his SunDrop.” Stephens was arrested on an aggravated assault charge.
Sheriff’s deputies spoke with Stephens and observed he had a cut over his eye, which he claimed happened when the victim hit him with a stick.
Deputies said they were unable to locate said stick but did recover a bloody machete as well as a hatchet Stephens was reportedly armed with.
Stephens was booked into the Franklin County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
