Man in machete attack arrested on warrant

Baton Rouge police say a 39-yar-old man who pleaded guilty to aggravated battery in a July machete attack then skipped his sentencing hearing in January was arrested Saturday after he allegedly shot at a woman inside a vehicle.
A bench warrant was issued Jan. 21 for Daniel Darnell Scott after he missed a sentencing hearing. Scott was accused of slashing a man in the face with a machete during a July street fight. He pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of aggravated battery in December but missed the sentencing hearing in January.
On Saturday, The Advocate reports police arrested Scott and booked him into Parish Prison on counts of aggravated assault.
It was unclear whether Scott has an attorney.
