(Newser) – San Jose police certainly started off the new year with a bang. They were alerted this morning that a man was outside a home with an assault rifle; he left before they arrived. When they pulled him over, he got out of the car naked ... and wielding a large Samurai sword. There was a standoff, as the man repeatedly told police, "You're going to have to kill me" while police tried to convince him to surrender. Eventually they were able to take him into custody, ABC 7 reports.
