Sheriff: Waterloo man threatened life of family member, then deputy with knife

Deputies arrested a 27-year-old Waterloo resident following a domestic incident where authorities say he threatened the life of a family member.

Nathaniel A. McLeod, 27, of Waterloo was charged with third-degree menacing, menacing a police officer, and aggravated family offense. Two of those charges are felonies, according to the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office.

The arrest and charges stem from a domestic incident where McLeod is alleged to have threatened a family member’s life. When law enforcement became involved, he wielded a knife — threatening the officer with it.

Once he dropped the knife, McLeod tried to evade police and barricade himself inside the residence unsuccessfully.

Deputies say McLeod was arraigned in Tyre Town Court and remanded to the Seneca County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 secured bond.

The charges will be answered at a later date.
