FRIDAY THE 13TH? NO, JUST SATURDAY THE 29TH:
LAWRENCE COUNTY MAN ARRESTED AFTER STRIKING ANOTHER MAN WITH MACHETE
APPARENTLY 20 DOLLARS IS ENOUGH TO NEARLY GET YOUR HEAD CHOPPED OFF IN THIS TOWN!!
LACY JAMES HALL,33, OF LOUISA, KY., WAS ARRESTED DURING THE ALL HALLOWS EVE WEEKEND, AFTER STRIKING A MAN IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH A MACHETE, DUE TO A ‘FINANCIAL AND/OR WEED DISPUTE’.
A Lawrence County man was arrested on early Saturday evening, October 29, after he allegedly attacked another male individual with a machete, in an act of violence straight out of a slasher horror movie airing on any participating cable channel running a Halloween holiday themed movie marathon.
Lacy James Hall, 33, of Louisa, was arrested and was charged with:
* ASSAULT, 1ST DEGREE.
According to the police arrest report, Lawrence County Sheriff deputy Tyler Laney responded to Blackberry Avenue in reference to an assault with a weapon. While he was on the way to the scene, deputy Laney was advised that the victim had been cut in the head with a machete by Hall.
When deputy Laney arrived, he observed a large cut on the left ear lobe of the victim, who stated that Lacy Hall had been asking him for $20 all day and that he yelled at him and told him he didn’t have it, the report said.
Lacy Hall then pulled out a machete and hit him in the side of the head with it, the arrest report said.
The injured victim drove himself to Three Rivers Medical Center for treatment, and deputy Laney went next door to Lacy Hall’s home, the arrest report said.
Lacy Hall stated that he had the machete in his hand but does not remember hitting the victim with it, telling deputy Laney that he would ‘never do that’.
Lacy Hall stated to deputy Laney that the victim came into the home, yelling at him and shoved him, and that he told the victim he needed to get rid of his marijuana plants in front of his house because he didn’t want to get in trouble, the arrest report said.
Lacy Hall further told deputy Laney that the victim then said to him, “What are you going to do about it?” and Lacy Hall reported to deputy Laney that he didn’t remember anything after that.
While talking to Lacy Hall, deputy Laney observed spots of blood on his left shoe, the arrest report said.
Deputy Laney arrested Lacy Hall for first-degree assault and seized his shoes and machete for evidence, the report said.Lacy James Hall was taken into custody and was transported to and was booked to be lodged in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center in Paintsville, KY., in Johnson County.
Hall posted his bond sometime afterwards, and he was released from the BSRDC jail on Monday evening, just in time for Halloween trick & treating.
Are you capable of writing an article without adding in terrible jokes? Grow up.
Whoever runs this site needs to hire better reporters.
Since it’s not a real newspaper, I enjoy the jokes. Wade has a sense of humor.
Big Citizen. — Define real newspaper. –Editor
A real newspaper is credible and unbiased. A real newspaper checks it’s facts before making claims, and isn’t skewed politically. The local high school newspaper is more of a credible news source than the Lazer.
So be specific on what we have done that is not factual. You’re a hater but do you have the right to blindly throw accusations like this in the school newspaper? I’d love for you to be specific so I can remove it!!? –bet you can’t find it.
List here when you write something why can’t you make sure it’s accurate and another thing this is the second time reading about this don’t you have anything new to write about. If you want a story then write about apposed victim having a piece of glass in his hand trying to cut his girlfriends throat Infront school bus full of kids. Or that he broke her jaw in three places. I say great job to the one who tried to take care of this piece of shirt go lacy hall.
Kevin — This story came from Lawrence Co. Sheriff Chuck Jackson’s official arrest report and this is our first story on it due to Wade’s health last week. Thanks for reading The Lazer! –Editor
Curious to know if there were any arrests made related to the said marijuana plants? No there were not. Before you publish information or false statements you should also be researching and clarifying your information when you publish to the public. This situation was not one to joke about and a person came very close to losing their life. This report of the situation has little to no basis on what actually happened. Don’t you think that you would check into your information just a little before you report it? At least clarify the false statement/accusations? I mean ya know to protect yourself from a defamation suit? Couldn’t agree more with above comment.
“Unknown” — The story came straight from Lawrence County Sheriff Chuck Jackson’s official arrest report. Check with him on facts. Thanks for reading the Lazer! Lot of unknowns out there… –Editor.
I’m curious about something too! Did the sheriff office crack jokes about the incident in their report?
I did not find anything funny about this article . I must have missed something somewhere.
