Man with Machete Threatens to Kill Over Direct TV Dish
By Lehigh Acres Gazette Source LCSO
Lee County Deputies say a Lehigh Acres man threatened to kill another man with a machete all over a Direct TV satellite dish on Wednesday afternoon.
A subcontractor working for Direct TV says he was told to remove John Jones’ dish from his Presbyterian Homes apartment due to nonpayment.
When the subcontractor arrived on Jones property, LSCO says Jones told him if he touched his dish, he would kill him.
Investigators from the LCSO said that Jones then brought out a machete cutting the subcontractor.
The subcontractor suffered minor cuts and was checked out by Lehigh Acres Fire Control and Rescue District on the scene.
Jones is currently released on bond.
