Evicted Tenant Threatens Landlord With a Machete (Seriously)

TULSA, Oklahoma – It started with a tuxedo shop. Or at least that is what the tenant claimed when he moved in. But rather than tuxedos, the tenant allegedly moved in numerous wanted fugitives, crack pipes, syringes, and mountains of trash.

According to Channel 6 News in Tulsa, the tenants had just been evicted from the property when property manager “Carl” came to change the locks, as landlords do after an eviction.

Sam immediately called the police, who came to the property and arrested the ex-tenants.

Rather than running a tuxedo shop, it appears the tenant instead moved in numerous individuals whom the police recognized as having warrants. You can see broken mirrors, large amounts of clothes strewn all over the building, and most of the doors and door jams ripped completely from the walls.
