Middle TN Man Arrested, Found in Judge’s Chamber with Ax

A man in Middle Tennessee is in custody after he was found in a judge’s chambers armed with an ax.

46-year-old Michael Dupont was charged last week with trespassing, disorderly conduct and more. Officials say he walked into the Stewart County Courthouse through a side door and made his way to the offices.

Sheriff Frankie Gray says they found Dupont sitting behind the judge’s desk with a gardening ax. Sheriff Gray says Dupont was also carrying multiple drugs and appeared to be on something. No word what he’s planning.
