SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A man is behind bars after allegedly threatening his roommate with a chainsaw. Gary Hayes said he faced some scary moments when his 63-year-old roommate Marvin Daniels came at him with a running chainsaw.
"I don't know what clicked in his head but he went off the deep end," said victim Gary Hayes.
The pair was having a normal conversation when minutes later Daniels started chasing Hayes with a revved up chainsaw.
"I was thinking, I need to get the hell out of here," Hayes said.
Hayes says Daniels tried to get into his bedroom through the window. He then came in the house and chased him down the hall. Daniels went back outside and Hayes was able to escape through the front door and contact police.
"When you come that close to getting a chainsaw wide open in your face it scares the out of you," he said.
No word on what charges Daniels may face.
