Police Bust Samurai Sword-Wielding, Cocoa Puff-Loving Man
If everyone just went about their business, we'd all be better off. But the cops would sure be bored. No worries about being bored for some cops in Indiana, as reported by The Chicago Tribune:
The still-unidentified man was discovered wandering along the [Interstate 65] just south of U.S. Highway 30 at about 2:30 p.m. "marching like a drum major" while holding the 35-inch [samurai] sword, state police said in a news release.
The shirtless man moved the sword rhythmically like a baton until Master Trooper Rick Hudson approached, officials said. The man swung defensively at Hudson, but dropped the sword when Hudson ordered him to, authorities said.So far, so good ...
Authorities said the suspect then tried to get into the 2010 Chevrolet SUV until he was ordered to the ground at gunpoint and Merrillville police took him into custody.Nice job, pal. Just got yourself some more charges.
Once in custody, the man gave authorities different names and addresses, but told Lake County Jail officials that he was “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.”The charges?
Though his identity hadn't been verified, authorities charged the man with attempted car jacking, resisting law enforcement and possession of marijuana.You'll find the source here.
