Franklin Police have been searching for a man who threatened family members last night with a machete. At 9:40 Thursday night, officers were summoned to a home on Cothran Drive after 29-year-old Christopher Dalton threatened family members with a machete during a disturbance. Dalton, who had been incarcerated since 03/21/2015, was just released from jail on February 8.
Dalton, who fled last night prior to officers arriving, is believed to have returned to the Cothran Drive home earlier today. Franklin Police SWAT entered the home a short time ago and found Dalton had, again, fled prior to officers sealing off the area.
Dalton, who was wanted for Aggravated Assault, was taken into custody moments ago outside a home on, nearby, West Meade Boulevard.
