The news today tends to be depressing, but sometimes a story comes across the police blotter that is just … weird. Such is the case of a story out of Washington State earlier this week about cops detaining a crazy, sword-swinging hunter of movie monsters.
From this past Tuesday’s Seattle Times “Blotter” comes the following oddball news blurb:
Sword-waving man detained on Bainbridge Island
“Bainbridge Island police have detained a man they say was waving a large sword around and stabbing objects in the parking lot of a Bainbridge Island building supply store.
The shirtless 35-year-old man was covered with scrapes and cuts. He told the off-duty Bainbridge Island police officer who approached him Tuesday afternoon that he was ‘hunting werewolves and C.H.U.D.s’ who could disguise themselves as humans. The man said he feared getting hurt.
The man put down his sword and throwing knives at the officer’s request and was taken to Harrison Memorial Hospital for evaluation.”
C.H.U.D.s disguised as humans? He must have been hunting Bud the CHUD, not the glowy-eyed, mutant, New York City sewer-dwelling C.H.U.D.s from the original film.
As for hunting werewolves, he’s already in Washington. Perhaps instead of sending him away for psychiatric evaluation, they should just drop him off in the city of Forks. I hear there’s a tribe of werewolves disguised as Native American underwear models that could use a good slaying.
