DO NOT hire this guy!
I think this could be classified as a "paint" post, but the "home disasters" definitely works too.
I saw this story and thought it was funny. To the victim it wasn't very funny, but now that he has survived.......in time it will also be a funny story even he can tell.
If you need painting done around your house, you may want to think twice before hiring this guy!
Frederick man charged in medieval battle ax attack

A Frederick painting contractor has been charged with slashing an employee in the forearm with a medieval-style battle ax.
Andrew Scalera, 44, faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 24 into the incident early Monday morning. He didn't return calls to his home or business Wednesday.
The Frederick News-Post reported that the victim told police he was doing some paperwork at Scalera's house when Scalera accused him of stealing quarters from his bedroom.
The man said he denied the allegation but Scalera became enraged and choked him. He said Scalera then went back to his bedroom and returned with the ax.
He contends Scalera hit him with the weapon as he was trying to spray him with pepper spray.
Court records state the 2-inch gash chipped a bone in the victim's arm.
If this is the most damage this guy can inflict with a battle axe, I really pity the guy when he gets to prison!
