Charges Dropped In Machete Attack

A Broward County man who spent Thanksgiving behind bars will get to spend Christmas as a free man.  

Fort Lauderdale's Jimmie Leeks was arrested last month for a machete attack on his landlord, but police say the accuser made it all up.  A witness came forward to say Leeks' landlord admitted to making up the story to get Leeks to leave the apartment.  

Leeks tells Local 10 News he paid a price by having his name slandered all over TV, but he's grateful to have his job and his freedom back.
