Beware angry teenagers with machetes

Seventeen-year-old Larry Nix-Marks was arrested yesterday while on the way to the BOCES school in Port Ewen, for allegedly bringing a machete to, well, some kind of fight:

Capt. Michael Freer of the Ulster County Sheriff’s Office said Larry Nix-Marks, 17, of Tillson, who is not a student at the BOCES facility, was carrying a machete and “was on his way to the school to get another student.”

“The arrest was made as he was approaching BOCES on foot,” Freer said, adding that the dispute between Nix-Marks and the targeted student was over a female acquaintance.
