A Florida man was arrested after police say he threatened a person with a machete over a $17 carton of potato chips.

Dustin Odum, 26, then allegedly led police on a chase. 


A Bay County Sheriff's Office news release says a truck driver was delivering supplies to a Panama City Beach restaurant and noticed Odum taking the chips and handing them to 24-year-old Jasmine Elizabeth Mundy on Monday.

A police chase ensued, and two deputies were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Odum faces several charges including aggravated fleeing. 

Mundy, who was wanted on an arrest warrant, was charged with armed robbery.
