Bates has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is being held on $10,000 bond at the Martin County Jail.
Fucking Florida, where you threaten your neighbor with a deadly weapon that you are too stupid to operate. Hey Stephen Bates here’s a pointer, if you are going to attempt to kill your neighbor with a chainsaw, you probably should know at least how to turn it on. Next time maybe take a practice run and chop down some trees, so you know how the weapon works before you try to kill your neighbor. I love Bates’ move when he realizes he is too dumb to operate the chainsaw, he throws it against the side of his neighbors house in frustration, like a typical Floridian criminal.
