A Cascade man pleaded guilty Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court to second-degree assault in a January incident in which he threatened another man with a machete, according to court records.

Cameron Mitchell Shockey, 25, of 25546 Military Road, was charged with first-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, misdemeanor theft and malicious destruction of property worth less than $500 in the Jan. 22 incident at 213 N. Cleveland Ave. in Hagerstown, according to charging documents.

Washington County Assistant State's Attorney Viki Pauler dropped the remaining charges against Shockey in exchange for the plea, according to court records. Circuit Judge Frederick C. Wright III ordered Shockey to pay $200 to the victim, Jason Gary Van Allen, before sentencing, a date for which is pending the completion of a presentence investigation, according to court documents.

According to charging documents, Shockey went to a party at Van Allen's home on Cleveland Avenue, left with a group of people and later returned with a machete, accusing Van Allen of slashing his tires.

Shockey ordered Van Allen to hand over his cell phone and drink a beer, telling him it would be his last, and ordered him around his house with the machete, according to charging documents. Van Allen, who barricaded himself in his bathroom until Shockey left, sustained small cuts from the machete, and was bruised from being grabbed, according to charging documents.
