MONROVIA, Calif. - A suspected car thief armed with a gun tried to elude police by running into a house, but was chased right back out by the home's Samurai-sword-wielding resident, police said Thursday. Wanton Beckwith, 27, of Rialto was booked for investigation of grand theft auto, being an ex-felon in possession of a gun, being under the influence with a gun, evading police and felony hit and run. Beckwith was allegedly driving a stolen car at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, when police attempted to pull him over. He led officers on a high-speed chase before crashing into two cars at an intersection, according to a statement from Police Chief Roger Johnson.

Fearing for his safety, the resident grabbed a Samurai sword on display in his home, confronted the intruder and ordered him outside, police said. The man then held the suspect at sword-point until police arrived. Edited to ask: WTF did I post the URL in the middle??

I have an AR (Bushy Varminter), a Samurai sword, and a BB gun that can be called into service to protect the home. The BB gun would be a poor choice, but it's a toss-up between the AR and the sword for "fear factor" to the BG. Ultimately the AR would likely be more effective in actually stopping the BG, but at close range there is something especially frightening about a BIG blade! Later,
