A Stafford man was arrested Saturday after deputies responded to a South Stafford residence for a disturbance involving a machete.

On May 21st at 11:08 a.m. the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office was contacted regarding a disturbance on Glebe Road. The victim reported Jarrett Payne, 48, had brandished a machete and threatened to chop up anyone that bothered him or tried to evict him from the residence. Additionally, the victim relayed Payne had threatened to burn down the residence.
