QUEBEC, Canada – Video of a man appearing to threaten a family with a chainsaw has gone viral.

Police say that man is Manuel Delisle, 37, who works as a tree trimmer.

The family says Delisle cut them off and drove erratically, so they decided to follow him and try to get his license plate.

When Delisle drove to a dead end street, the family moved to block him in. That is when they say Delisle got out of his truck to yell at them, and when he realized they were filming, he came back with a chainsaw.

Delisle was later arrested on charges of armed assault, to which he pleaded not guilty.
