A Hardwick man who has been drinking hand sanitizer recently threatened to burn his parents’ house down and was thinking about cutting them up and eating them. That’s according to documents filed by police in Caledonia Superior Court. Zane D. Davison, 28, pleaded not guilty to 2nd-degree aggravated domestic assault on Tuesday and was released on conditions by Judge Justin Jiron. Hardwick Police say Ofc. Paul Barnard was approached by Davison’s father – Trevor Howard, 50 on Jan. 2. Howard asked Ofc. Barnard to respond to his residence in Hardwick. “He stated his son Zane Davison was threatening to burn the house down after an argument he had with Howard,” Upon arrival at the home, Howard showed police a blue cup with hand sanitizer in it and said that Davison had been drinking it – which Davison later confirmed. Police said Davison also admitted to biting his father’s ear that morning. “Davison told Trevor and Dawn Howard that he had been watching them sleep last night standing over them thinking about cutting them up and eating them.” Howard also told police that Davison told him he has the judicial system beat because he can just say he has mental health issues, according to the report.
