      Sword-wielding man arrested

      David Salmons is charged with first degree burglary, second degree domestic assault, three counts of unlawful use of a weapon, armed criminal action, felony resisting arrest and property damage.
      A Fulton man was arrested Thursday night after a disturbance with a sword and a chase. At about 11:20 p.m. Thursday, deputies went to a home in central Callaway County for a disturbance involving a weapon. When they got there, they found out the suspect, 41-year-old David Salmons, was gone. During their investigation, authorities said they determined Salmons had gone to the home with a sword, poked several holes in the side of the residence and then forced his way in, which is where three adult relatives were. Salmons was held at bay after he got inside the home because one of his relatives had a firearm. Salmons then left the home in his truck and was later spotted by deputies. When they tried to stop him, the Fulton man sped off and led them on a short chase. Salmons was later taken into custody without incident. Callaway County deputies said they found a weapon in his truck. Salmons is charged with first-degree burglary, second-degree domestic assault, three counts of unlawful use of a weapon, armed criminal action, felony resisting arrest and property damage. His bond is set at $52,500.
