Charges Against Woman with Chainsaw Dropped
WINFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- Prosecutors in Lincoln County, Mo., have dropped charges against a woman who was initially accused of scaring neighborhood children with a chainsaw.
Lincoln County prosecutor Leah Askey told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that charges against 50-year-old Lynn Marie Herzog of Winfield were dismissed after a grand jury failed to indict her.
The incident happened in June. Authorities said Herzog was wearing a ski mask and holding a chainsaw when she aggressively approached neighborhood children. She was charged with felony harassment.
