Insanity At A Toys R Us Store: Dude Attacks Shoppers With Light Saber
"Police in Oregon said they arrested a man accused of assaulting fellow Toys R Us customers with a toy light saber.
An officer used a Taser on the man, but he was able to use the light saber to break one of the wires, police said. They said the man was tackled to the ground and continued to struggle while being taken into custody."
It`s fortunate that this crazy dude wandered into a Toys R Us instead of an ACE hardware store, a metal axe is a lot more lethal than a plastic light saber.
The reports that it was Herman Cain swinging the light saber aren`t true, he would have been swinging something else.
The cop who tasered the man must have felt like an idiot, his colleagues will never let him forget that a nutjob with a light saber got the best of him.
I`d rather put up with a man brandishing a light saber or an axe for that matter, than deal with shoppers who will knock you over in their search for a great deal.
The Star Wars hero wannabe was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
