(Newser) – Here's something you don't see every day: a man screaming at people in a parking lot and waving a 3-foot-long sword … while naked. The incident took place at an apartment complex in Atlantic Beach, Fla., Saturday; one witness tells WAWS the man charged at passersby. Luckily, a Good Samaritan was on standby. "A man was there that was in the Navy, I think, and he kind of subdued the guy and eventually got him to drop the sword and then tackled him to the ground and waited until the cops came," the witness says. Police aren't saying much about the incident and it's not known if the man has been charged.
