Chain Saw Wielding Neighbor Scares Kids

Posted: Updated:

If you want to scare the pants off the neighbors, a chain saw may seem perfect. But a woman in Lincoln County, MO may have taken it too far.

FOX News' Andy Banker tells the story of woman scaring kids with a chainsaw.

Neighbors say they are now more frightened than ever of Lynn Marie Herzog.

According to neighbor Patty Fleming, Herzog had been sawing a tree that came down during a recent storm at Herzog's home.

Herzog was also wearing an open-face ski mask.

"I come out of my door and hear her screaming at the kids. The boys start walking and she starts walking towards them, with her skull mask and her chain saw, shaking it like she was going to hurt the kids."

Cell phone video was captured of what Patty Fleming says is Herzog recently screaming at neighbors from yard; according to Fleming, screaming is one thing , but holding a chain saw while doing it is another.

So, authorities have charged herzog with a felony this time, punishable by up to 4 years in prison if convicted.
