CNN is carrying a story today about a jackass who chased his girlfriend down the street with a knife and then barricaded himself in his house. During the six-hour standoff with law enforcement, he came out once for a commando-style attack on police with — get this — a cordless nail gun. Note that the cops aren’t afraid (for themselves) or amused. Sadly I’m betting that they were more concerned about trying to shut the guy down without hurting him.
All ends well, though, as CNN reports that a combination of tear gas and pleading brought the guy out with no injuries. Check the video out for the whole deal. Personally, I wish we had audio from it so we could hear the nails plinking off the sheriff’s car.
