New Orleans police have a man in custody who armed himself with a machete before arriving outside City Hall Tuesday afternoon.
The suspect was shirtless when confronted by law enforcement officers who arrived on the scene around 3 p.m. He apparently refused orders to put the weapon down and was taken into custody after being shocked with a Taser and falling to the ground.
The man was transported to the hospital for a mental evaluation and is facing charges of aggravated assault and resisting arrest.
