Machetes are often used in movies by killers like Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th series. There is a movie where actor Danny Trejo plays a character called Machete who has some of the best kills ever if you like gory action movies. The latest use of the machete you may have seen being used to kill zombies in The Walking Dead by Rick Grimes and Michonne. These are just movies and TV shows, people don't do this in real life, do they?

Unlike Jason Voorheis in the movie Friday the 13th, this machete-wielding man could talk. According to FOX 17, the machete man was saying "Everyone was going to hell going to hell." The man left after being confronted by graduation party guests but wasn't hard to find since he drove his vehicle on the lawn of the Mecosta County Sheriff's Office. A corrections officer approached the machete man who threatened the officer and was quickly nabbed by police. The man is now in the Mecosta County Jail looking at several felonies and it's still a mystery to police and the graduation party why he was threatening people with a machete.
