Police say Teryl Parnell grabbed a machete, called the authorities and dared the suspect to move.
"I'm not afraid and I know exactly how to use it," said Parnell. "You need to sit right here and you need to sit and wait for the cops because you're going to jail," she said she told him.
Deputies showed up and put the cuffs on 25-year-old Christopher Weaver.
