As reported via Yahoo news:

Porn DVD screams prompt sword 'rescue'

OCONOMOWOC, Wis. - A man says he broke into an apartment with a cavalry sword because he thought he heard a woman being raped, but the sound actually was from a pornographic movie his upstairs neighbor was watching.

"Now I feel stupid," said James Van Iveren, who has been charged in the case. "This really is nothing, nothing but a mistake."

According to a criminal complaint, the neighbor told police that Van Iveren pounded on the door and kicked it open without warning Feb. 12, damaging the frame and lock.

"Where is she?" Van Iveren demanded, thrusting the sword at the neighbor, the complaint said. "Where is she?"

The neighbor told police Van Iveren became increasingly aggressive as he repeated the question, insisting that he had heard a woman being raped. The complaint said that, with the sword pointed at him, the neighbor led Van Iveren throughout the apartment, opening closet doors to prove he was alone.

The neighbor later played for police the part of the DVD he believed Van Iveren heard downstairs.

Van Iveren, 39, of Oconomowoc, was charged with criminal trespass, criminal damage and disorderly conduct, all while using a dangerous weapon, and is due in court March 5. Together, the misdemeanor counts carry a maximum sentence of 33 months in jail.

Van Iveren said Tuesday that he heard a woman "screaming for help," grabbed the sword, bounded up the stairs, kicked in the apartment door and confronted the man who lived there.

"I intended to hold it behind my back and knock. But I froze and instead, what happened happened," he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Contesting his neighbor's account, Van Iveren said he didn't look anywhere in the apartment except the front room, and that he never threatened the neighbor with the sword.

"I had the sword extended. But that was all," he said.

Van Iveren, who lives with his mother in the downstairs apartment, said he did not call police when he heard the noises because he does not have a telephone. He said he barely knew the upstairs tenant.

Police seized Van Iveren's sword, which he said was a family heirloom.

Lesson learned: Although this case is plainly stupid & silly, there still is a lesson to be learned which is call the po-po _first_ before going all John Wayne. If you have no access to a phone such as this guy then well knock on a neighbors door and ask to use their phone, duh!
Even if there had been a person in the room being raped the neighbor still had no right by law or allowance to go off on a vivilante mission. Oh, and swords in some states are unlawful to posses or carry as a defensive tool aside from inside ones own home.

Friday evening they had this huy on CNN live doing an interview.
He looked exactly like in my mind I imagine the average OT/Crowbarn member.
After showing the interview gal around his home showing the door jam being kicked in and such she askedhimif this event would stop him from watching anymore porn.
His response; "<Psssshaw!> I'm just going to use headphones next time!"

I literally laughed outloud at my TV screen.

At least it was plain old porn... think of what it could have been...


"Hey, I hear a woman screaming! She's being raped! Sounds like.. a battery powered torture device!

And there sounds like there are at least seven guys in there!... and.. a dog! Oh my gosh, it sounds like she is completely encased in a rubber suit!!! And I think I hear... a horse!!"
