WEST LEBANON - A Lebanon man with a history of arrests over allegations of threatening behavior was taken into custody without incident after multiple callers reported that he was threatening people with a machete outside the Circle K convenience store on Monday afternoon.
Dana Lund, 55, of Butternut Lane was held overnight at the Grafton County House of Correction for lack of $15,000 cash bail after he was charged with a single felony count of criminal threatening with a deadly weapon.
Lebanon Police responded to the convenience store around 4:20 p.m. Monday after receiving reports that an argument which began at the gas pumps had escalated when witnesses said Lund retrieved a machete from his pickup truck and began to wave it around at several people in a threatening manner before entering the store.
A decade ago Lund was arrested in White River Junction for allegedly chasing down and grabbing a driver who he thought had deliberately spun his tires in front of his house and, in a separate incident, was arrested for his alleged involvement in a fight amongst a trio of roofers that police at the time said involved Lund making threats with a hammer.
