Here’s a story you don’t hear every day, a Florida man attacked an Orlando tattoo artist with a sword and guitar. Yep, Jason Gay allegedly walked into a the tattoo shop and was told by the tattooist to flip through some books while he finished up a customer. Next thing Gay struck the artist in the shoulder with a sword and whacked him on the back of a head with a guitar. Luckily the customer had the foresight to pick up a glass table top and hit Gay over the head with it. Gay’s excuse …they were playing “word games” with me.

Could there be anything worse than an ex postal worker with a samurai sword? Sheez, I don’t know, might want to ask the poor deli clerk who was confronted by the angry katan-style samurai sword wielding Michael Burr. The deli clerk was just minding his own beeswax when the former postal worker came in and began swinging the sword around. Burr eventually fled the scene and ran back home where a five hour standoff with the Washington SWAT team ensued. The drama ended when a canister of tear gas was shot through his window. Burr had recently been suspended from his US postal Service job.
Nothing like a suicidal, sword wielding man to get the heart rate pumping. It all started when police were called to a Boston apartment and tried to enter. While the cops were pounding the door, the man inside jumped through a closed third-floor window, bounced off an awning, slammed into the ground and ran off. Ta-da. Back up was called and some 20 cops chased after him . At some stage he spun around and drew a sword then charged the police shouting “Shoot me! Kill me!”. Hats off to the police, who restrained from pulling triggers while Sgt. Thomas Teahan snuck up from behind and tackled him.
