Powertool hijinks in Tasmania:

A woman is facing police assault charges after allegedly threatening officers with a running chainsaw in Tasmania.

Police said the 24-year-old woman was “verbally abusive and threatening” towards officers after they were called to a disturbance in Claremont, about 12 kilometres from Hobart’s CBD.

“She repeatedly refused to comply with officers’ directions to drop the chainsaw,” police said in a statement.

After a short standoff, the woman let go of the chainsaw and ran from the area, police said.

An important unanswered question: did she start the saw all by herself?
