PLYMOUTH – Prosecutors have formally charged a Walkerton man with battery with a deadly weapon after he allegedly hit another man in the head with a hatchet in late June.

Along with the battery count, the Marshall County Prosecutor’s Office also charged Matthew V. Obrien, 26, with misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.

According to court documents and a Plymouth Police Department news release:

City officers were dispatched to the intersection of East Garro and Water streets shortly before 2:30 a.m. June 26 on a report of an unknown disturbance.

Officer Paul Stamper was first at the scene. He found Obrien, who was “wearing headgear with antlers,” armed with a knife and a hatchet, according to documents.

Obrien “shouted ‘shoot me’ and ‘kill me,’” according to court papers.
