Naked sword-wielding man arrested after standoff in San Jose
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KFSN) -- San Jose police took a naked, sword-wielding man into custody after a short chase and standoff Tuesday morning.
Police received a 911 call from a witness saying an adult man was in front of a home with an assault rifle. As officers made their way to the scene, he took off in a car.
When Police caught up with the suspect he got out of the car, holding a large samurai sword saying quote, "you're going to have to kill me" several times.
The assault rifle and the suspect's vehicle were safely secured, but it took police more than two hours for the Crisis Intervention Team to talk him into giving up.
