That's one way to kill the mood

I think the humor of this story stands on its own, without any comment from me:

Man mistakes porn DVD as woman's cries for help
He faces charges after entering apartment with sword in tow

"It was a woman screaming," he recalled Tuesday. "She was screaming for help."

Sword in hand, he bounded up the stairs, kicked in the door and confronted a man who turned out to be alone - watching a pornographic movie.

"Now I feel stupid," Van Iveren said.

Seriously, read the whole thing. It's jam-packed with awesomeness.


  • I guess if you live with your mother and own a sword... are those really his eyes in the mug shot?

  • The most distressing part is that you can kick down someone's door and point a sword at him, and the most you can get is 33 months in jail. If he had had some drugs in his pocket when he did it, he'd get more jail time for the drugs than for terrorizing an innocent person in his home.

  • I applaud his actions. He almost came to the rescue of a damsel in distress with a sword. Defense of others is an affirmative defense to all the crimes he was chraged with. As long as he had a subjectively reasonable belief, he should prevail at trial, if the charges don't get dismissed before that.
