Man Threatens Officers With Machete At Police Station 

A man walked into the Fort Myers Police Department Wednesday morning and threatened officers with a machete.

Dejuan Jarrell Anderson, 19, of Fort Myers, showed up in the lobby around 7:15 a.m. and asked to speak to an officer.

Surveillance video from the incident shows Anderson with the machete as officers confront him.

Police say one officer pulled his taser, but Anderson was able to swing the machete and cut the wires on it.

"The subject swung the machete, cutting the wire and rendering it useless. Both officers then drew their weapons," said Captain Jim Mulligan. Within seconds - the lobby was filled with 8 officers.

Lt. Randy Jelks tasered him a few moments later, and Anderson was taken to the floor.

"I fired it one time and it hit him and he dropped the machete," he said. "If he would've made a move towards an officer to harm him he could've been seriously injured or killed."
