I've been playing role-playing games and the like for a long time with friends. After reading this I had to check the name and picture to make sure
he wasn't one of them. Anyway, here we go...
Crusader Nabbed By Michigan Cops
Medieval sword, mallet, armor no match for ye olde Taser
AUGUST 5--Meet Robert McClain. The Michigan man, 42, was arrested last week after he attempted to literally go medieval on cops. According to the
below Royal Oak Police Department report, officers were dispatched to McClain's home after a motorist called 911 to report that McClain had fled the
scene of an auto accident. When they arrived at his crib, McClain allegedly tried to strike a cop with a four-foot sword. After missing, McClain
retreated to his basement, where he donned a chainmail armored vest and leather gauntlets to protect his arms. He also added a giant wooden mallet to
his arsenal and beckoned officers to come downstairs and get him. "I'm gonna crush your #ing skulls," McClain warned. Then, in a nice rhetorical
flourish (for a lunatic, at least), he added, "I have a thousand years of power." That omnipotence, however, was no match for a police Taser, which
felled McClain. He was then carted off and charged with felony assault and a misdemeanor count for failing to remain at an accident scene.
...and no, I don't believe role-playing games caused
this to happen.
Pray, train, study,
