An Arkansas man is accused of blocking the path of a church bus carrying children while waving a hatchet and knife Sunday.

A 911 caller reported about 10:20 a.m. that a man, later identified as 59-year-old David Lee Lindley, was standing in the intersection of 11th and School streets in Ozark wielding the weapons, according to a news release from the city's Police Department.

The bus and Lindley were gone by the time an officer arrived, but he was eventually located in the basement of a nearby home, the release states. Police noted that the 59-year-old seemed to be "under the influence of something."

As of Tuesday afternoon, he was being held at the Franklin County jail in lieu of $10,000 bond on charges of aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a minor, records show.

Why did the bus stop? Go around him. Knock him out of the way. Those are deadly weapons. He might be mentally ill, but to stop placed the children in danger. Not sure what I would have done, but stopping doesn't seem to be a first choice.
