Late on the rent? German landlord threatens tenants in arrears with chainsaw
A landlord demanding rent arrears threatened tenants and German police with a whirring chainsaw, a police spokesman said today.
The frightened tenants called police to the scene, and the 45-year-old man eventually dropped the chainsaw when the officers showed their guns.
The spokesman said the landlord was apparently trying to collect €13,000 in rent on a flat in the southern town of Burgau. He was charged with threatening bodily harm.
