A 22 year old Lincoln man has been arrested after police say he stuffed an 18-inch machete down his pants inside a McDonald’s.
According to Police Kelly Savage told officers he had the machete because he had just been hired as a lumberjack. A Lincoln Police spokesman says the incident happened at the restaurant at 547 North 48th Street around 10:30 Monday night.
Police say Savage was told by an employee that he couldn't have the machete. Savage then tied the handle to his drawstrings and put the rest of the machete down the front of his pants.
Savage was booked for Carrying a Concealed Weapon and and Possession of a Deadly Weapon by a Prohibited Person. Savage is a convicted felon.
