Police say a man with a chain saw who chased two college students playing disc golf in South Carolina has been charged with first-degree assault.
Investigators told the Anderson Independent-Mail that the Clemson University students saw the man crouched over the machine at the disc golf course near Walhalla on Friday, when he suddenly cranked up the chain saw and ran after them.
Police say 37-year-old Jerry Lee Roach already was facing an aggravated assault and battery charge from May when he tried to use a chain saw to attack an Oconee County sheriff's deputy.
Roach was being held in the Oconee County jail. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
