Tyler Jina, 28, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault last week after threatening members of his family and law enforcement with a sword, according to an Upson County Sheriff’s Office report.

Jina put the sword to his father’s neck and threatened to kill him, along with two other subjects in the residence, witnesses stated. The father told Sgt. Mike Rucker and Deputy Justin Shaw that Jina said he would kill law enforcement upon their arrival, according to the report.

UCSO personnel entered the home and found Jina still holding the sword. After verbal commands from law enforcement, Jina replaced the sword on the wall and was taken into custody without further incident.
