TURBOTVILLE — A Pennsylvania man is behind bars after police say he went after his housemate with a chain saw.
Seventy-six-year-old Guy Allen Black is being held on $100,000 bail after allegedly cutting through a door at the home he shared with Ronald Lee Tanner and swinging the chain saw at him.
State police say Black became irate after Tanner changed the locks on the home he owns in Turbotville, Northumberland County.
Black allegedly entered the house through the basement and used an ax and chain saw to cut through an interior door before chasing Tanner outside.
Investigators say the saw got stuck on Tanner's shirt and jammed, allowing Tanner to pin Black down with an umbrella.
Tanner was unhurt. It's not immediately clear if Black has an attorney.

2nd suspect surrenders in bike path killing

Penn St. seeks to have McQueary case put on hold
BELLEFONTE — Penn State wants a judge to out former assistant football coach Mike McQueary's defamation and whistleblower lawsuit against the university on hold.
Lawyers for the university filed a motion Monday in Centre County court asking to prevent the lawsuit from moving forward while criminal charges are pending against two school administrators.
The school argues it wouldn't be fair to have the case proceed until the criminal charges are resolved against athletic director Tim Curley, now on leave, and retired vice president Gary Schultz.
Their trial is set for January on charges they didn't properly report suspected child abuse by Jerry Sandusky and lied to the grand jury that investigated him.
McQueary testified this summer that he saw the former Penn State defensive coach assault a boy in a team shower.
Student sues over sex tape suspension
PHILADELPHIA — A Pennsylvania high school student claims he was unfairly punished after a fellow student secretly recorded him having sex with his girlfriend in a Casablanca hotel during a school trip.
Sixteen-year-old Anders Hemdal filed a federal civil rights suit last week against Schuylkill Valley School District, saying his four-day suspension wasn't appropriate because he did nothing wrong during a Spanish club trip in April.
Hemdal's suit says he and his then-girlfriend were humiliated when they learned of the recording. All three students were punished after the school learned of the tape.
Hemdal's suit claims he was punished for actions not prohibited in the school's code of conduct because the contact wasn't on school property. A student behavior slip Hemdal signed for the trip acknowledges sexual activity is cause to be sent home.
School officials did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Monday.
New public corruption hotline announced in Philly
PHILADELPHIA — Federal and local officials in Philadelphia have set up a new hotline for citizens to report tips about public corruption.
George Venizelos, special agent in charge of the FBI's Philadelphia field division, announced the hotline at a news conference Monday. He says it's part of an ongoing effort to combat corruption by public officials in government and law enforcement.
The hotline is a coordinated effort involving the U.S. Attorney's Office, the FBI, the state Attorney General's Office, city government, police and others. It will focus on Philadelphia, but authorities say they will follow the tips wherever they lead.
Authorities say there's no particular reason for the timing of the announcement, but that tips from the public are valuable in corruption probes.
The number is 1-855-FBI-TIPS.
