According to The Capital Times, one man went a little overboard after his sword pierced the drywall and entered his neighbor’s apartment.
The 21-year-old man was using a sharpened Japanese sword as he recorded himself (I imagine in the same fashion as the Star Wars kid), but became a little too enthusiastic and plunged the sword through the wall.
He was taken down to the station on the charge of second-degree reckless endangerment because even though he was doing it in his apartment, it carried over into the neighbor’s apartment without warning.
Here’s how the police described the neighbor’s experience:
According to the incident report, the 27-year-old male neighbor was making breakfast when he heard a loud thumping coming from his bedroom.
“He went to see what the racket was all about,” said police spokesman Joel DeSpain. “He been awakened in the past by loud rock music, but this time it wasn’t speakers thumping but the polished tip of a sword or dagger piercing the drywall.”
Police were called.
I can’t blame the guy for calling police after seeing the tip of a 27-inch katana coming through his bedroom wall.
Just remember, if you’re ever recording yourself slicing and thrusting with a sharpened sword, do it in a large room.
