An altercation could’ve gotten way out of hand in La Salle.
Police were called late Monday morning for the report of a fight at the intersection of 3rd and Tonti Street. During the verbal spat, 28-year-old Zachary Trumbauer of La Salle is accused of threatening 45-year-old Maurico Collins also of La Salle with an axe. For his part Collins allegedly threatened Trumbauer with a machete and baseball bat. Fortunately none of the weapons were actually used in the dustup.
Both Trumbauer and Collins were given tickets for disturbing the peace. Each was released with a court date.
