Noel E. Dawson Jr., 63, of the 400 block of Elder Drive, is charged with domestic violence, assault, both first-degree misdemeanors; criminal damaging, a second-degree misdemeanor; and failure to disclose personal information, a fourth-degree misdemeanor. 

Toledo Municipal Court Judge Robert Christiansen set bond at $50,000 Tuesday with no option to post 10 percent. The case was continued to today. 

Mr. Dawson pleaded not guilty today to the charges. 

Mr. Dawson is accused of chasing a family member Sunday with a hatchet. Prosecutors allege he swung the hatchet at the man, but struck his truck instead — leaving a large dent in the hood, according to a complaint filed in Toledo Municipal Court.

When Mr. Dawson was arrested, he refused to give the officer any of his information and rather just shouted obscenities, court records show.
