Despite Rumors To The Contrary This WAS NOT Me

I swear

A naked, machete-wielding man was charged after he allegedly threatened bystanders and a police officer Monday on Long Island, according to a published report.

The man was waving the 20-inch machete at people in the parking lot of a Lake Grove Costco, Newsday reports.

Police found the man barricaded inside the cab of a tractor-trailer he operated for a New Jersey company, according to Newsday. He initially refused to get out of the truck, which contained clothes and a microwave, but later tried to get out with the machete as officers tried to contain him, the report said.

    “Officers allegedly found cocaine in the cab”. ‘Splains a lot.

    Machete up. Don’t shoot.

    I think that one qualifies as a definite nutcase. Hopefully someone will find out what made him snap – and NOT let him out of custody until he’s sane again.

    Sigh; more likely he’ll be released on parole tomorrow.

    And no, we don’t think it was you, Mr. Bingley – no booze in sight? Not a chance! 😛

    Mr. Bingley wouldn’t run around Long Island, swinging a machete.

    No, he’d wear a kilt, and swing a claymore. And the kilt would fall off now and then.
