According to the police, this charmer had a domestic dispute with the lady, during which she locked herself inside his vehicle. He then took a machete out of the car's trunk – doesn’t everyone’s car have a machete in the trunk? – and smashed out the driver's side window.
The ex-girlfriend then ran off but Mister Congeniality gave chase, wielding the machete and swinging it at her several times.
The victim told police that when her former beau heard police sirens, he stopped pursuing her and tried to flee. But the responding officers located him and placed him under arrest, charged with aggravated assault.
The police report noted that the machete has been secured as evidence. Thankfully, there were no machete wounds on the woman to be documented.
