Machete incident ends with New Jersey man being arrested

It is not every day you get to write about an incident that involves two people; one of whom, for some reason, has a machete; where no one gets seriously hurt; and that also has a legal angle. So we’re going to take our chances with this assault story.

A man from Trenton, New Jersey, got into an altercation with another person after a night out at a bar. In the early morning hours, the two apparently assaulted each other — and, for an unknown reason, there was a machete lying on the ground near them. The Trenton man used the machete to defend himself, injuring the other person (though not seriously).

The circumstances here are obviously very bizarre. Why was there a machete on the ground? What caused the two men to get into the altercation? What are the details involved in the actual physical struggle between the two? Did the Trenton man attack first, or was the other man the initial antagonist?

The Trenton man was arrested for aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose — however, the man contends he acted in self-defense.

No matter what happened, the charges against the Trenton man are very serious. While there is little doubt that the man used a weapon, it seems the charge may be too harsh. In the heat of the moment, many New Jersey residents would search and scramble for anything that would help them defend themselves in a physical altercation.

There is also the self-defense angle. Many defendants are handed serious charges, even though they acted in self-defense. Proving that you acted in such a way is critical to your case — and that begins with eyewitness testimony that another person triggered the physical encounter.
