A Bristol man was arrested after threatening several people with a machete in Waterbury and pressing the blade to a woman's neck, police said.

According to police, Edward Donahue, 27, was drinking beer and whiskey at a party when he knocked a drink out of a woman's hand and pushed her to the ground. He then went out to the driveway and put a machete blade up to a woman's neck.

Police said Donahue also swung the machete at several other people.

Donahue was arrested early Wednesday morning and charged with first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree threatening, third-degree assault, breach of peace and carrying a dangerous weapon, police said.

Donahue is being held on $50,000 bond, according to police.
