A Livingston County man was taken into custody Wednesday on allegations of resisting arrest and assaulting a law enforcement officer. Chillicothe police responded to the 300 block of Jackson Street after residents reported a suspicious person holding a machete.

Leon Walter, 33, was transported to Hedrick Medical Center and it was there that police say he assaulted an officer. Walter is being held in the county jail on a $25,000 bond. He’s been charged with unlawful use of a weapon. The two additional charges are pending.
