Missouri woman accused of chasing kids with chainsaw
(KTNV) -- It sounds like something out of a horror movie.
A Missouri woman is behind bars for allegedly putting on a ski mask and threatening her neighbors' kids with a chainsaw.
They neighbors say they are more scare of Lynn Marie Herzog than they have ever been.
Herzog was cutting up a tree last weekend that came down in her yard after a recent storm. She was wearing an open-face ski mask at the time.
A neighbor says that they saw Herzog walking towards her kids, screaming and shaking a chainsaw.
Herzog is facing a felony and is facing up to four years in prison if convicted.
The parents say they think a mental treatment facility would be the better way to go.
