Pequannock Chainsaw Massacre

"The pen is mightier than the sword" - Edward Bulwer-Lytton

Two roommates in New Jersey got into an argument that quickly escalated and culminated with an arrest and a hospital visit. Nelson Negron and Charles Demarest got into a heated exchange shortly after Mr. Demarest began working on a laundry machine. The noise of the task caused Mr. Negron to become upset and confront his roommate. Here's what happened next:

Feeling threatened by Demarest, Negron started a small chain saw and raised it toward his housemate, according to Spring, who said Demarest then threw two pieces of split wood at Negron, cutting his face badly.
Negron was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose.
