A Middle River Man has been arrested after he threatened another man with a chainsaw during a fight.

Just before 7:30 p.m. on August 29, Baltimore County Police responded to a home in the 11100 block of Bird River Grove Road 21162 for a fight. When officers arrived at the scene, they located one man in front of the home with an injury to his forehead and another man in the home with a cut to his hand.

The investigation has indicated that the two men had gotten into the argument inside the home. The argument turned physical and the man who owned the home told the other man, who had been staying there, to get his things and leave. The argument continued as the two men went outside the home. The man who had been staying at the home retrieved a chainsaw from his truck, started it, and moved towards the other man.

The man who threatened the other man with the chainsaw was taken into custody. While in custody, he was transported to an area hospital for treatment of injuries that he received during the altercation. He has been identified as 43-year-old Michael Brian Dobihal of the 7000 block of Oliverwood Road 21220. Dobihal has been charged with first-degree assault and second-degree assault. He is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $50,000 bail.
