Tallahassee police say a man with a machete kicked down the man's door, pulled him out of his bed by his collar and demanded money.
When police arrived on scene, the man with the machete had run next door. They talked him into coming out with his hands up.
Police have charged 28-year-old Christopher James with aggravated assault, burglary, and more.
The victim told police James wanted money so he could post bond, apparently aware that there was already a warrant out for his arrest on other charges.
