(TAYLORSVILLE) - A Taylorsville man is under arrest after allegedly rampaging with a cutlass and threatening to harm his young nephews.

A woman called 911 at about 7:40 Tuesday night to report that her brother, 23-year-old Harley Pasley, was intoxicated and causing trouble including cutting the caller's hand with a piece of glass, according to reports from the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department.

Pasley allegedly grabbed the phone from the victim and hung it up.

Deputies found Pasley in a storage building with the weapon and police say he refused to obey orders, instead allegedly swinging the cutlass at deputies, causing them to pull their weapons. After an attempt to use a Taser didn't subdue him, three deputies tackled him and wrested the sword away.

Deputies report that Pasley had been drinking rubbing alcohol and he was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital for treatment before being taken to jail on preliminary charges of battery and interfering with a 911 call.
