A criminal named Thomas McGowan entered the home of Jimmy Morgan Jr. after fleeing from police while driving a stolen car. He entered through a window, but didn’t expect what he found: Jimmy Morgan Jr., a man suffering from schizophrenia, holding a spear.
As it turns out, Morgan is a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, which is a group that recreates medieval culture. Morgan proceeded to go “medieval” on McGowan:
Luckily for the intruder, he was only injured in the hand and shoulder. “As he was running, he smeared blood from here to high heaven and he splattered here and he splattered there and splattered all over there. It was like a deer,” Morgan said.
Morgan said to the local news that he learned spear fighting as a hobby. “It’s called the SCA. It’s medieval fighting and we do use spears and swords and things of that nature. I don’t have a firearm so I have a short spear, very quick, very agile and very deadly.”
McGowan managed to escape and was captured and taken to the hospital where he was treated for his injuries and then booked in jail. Police later found out that he did indeed own the car and had recovered it after it was reported stolen.
