Police Arrest Naked, Sword-Wielding Man There was a standoff as guy brandished sword at cops By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Jan 1, 2013 4:24 PM CST Updated Jan 6, 2013 8:14 AM CST 82 comments Comments (Shutterstock) (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.
