Machete-wielding man arrested Sunday night

Daniel Reyes-Estrada, 27, of Central Islip, N.Y. charged with five five misdemeanors after incident on Turkey Run Road.
Fauquier Sheriff’s deputies Sunday night arrested a man on five misdemeanor charges including brandishing a machete south of Warrenton.

Deputies responded to a 9-1-1 call for a man “in the roadway waiving a machete at passing cars” on Turkey Run Road off Meetze Road around 8:30 p.m. Sunday Sept. 9, Sgt. James Hartman said in a press release.

“The man was standing with three other individuals next to a car on the side of the road.”

Three of the four individuals obeyed deputies commands, however, Daniel Reyes-Estrada, 27, of Central Islip, N.Y., “described in the 9-1-1 call as having a machete, repeatedly challenged deputies and was extremely uncooperative.”

“Deputies deployed a taser twice with no effect. A K-9 was unsuccessful in bringing the man under control,” according to Sgt. James Hartman.

“Upon the third taser deployment the man fell to the ground and was taken into custody. A black handled machete was located on the ground next to the vehicle.

“Further investigation revealed this individual may have been involved in an altercation earlier at a store in Nokesville where he was refused service for the purchase of alcohol.”

Mr. Reyes-Estrada was transported to the Fauquier Hospital Emergency Room after deputies found injuries sustained prior to his encounter with law enforcement.

Deputies charged Mr. Reyes-Estrada with five misdemeanors including: public intoxication, obstruction of justice, possession of marijuana, possession of a schedule IV narcotic and two counts of brandishing a machete. As of Tuesday, he remains at Fauquier Hospital.

Also at the scene, Dalyn James Skinner, 20, of Warrenton, was released on a summons for possession of marijuana.
