Sword-wielding Porn Star, part 2


In an earlier post (Why I’m losing faith in The Huffington Post…), I talked about a disgruntled porn star who attacked some people with a machete.  Well, here’s an update on that story, with a major correction.

I said in the original post that the guy had been apprehended by the police.  Turns out I was wrong about that.  He drove off and apparently hid out for a while.  Then, for whatever reason, found himself at the edge of a rocky cliff being pursued by the SWAT team.  There he was, sword pointed toward his belly, threatening to kill himself by falling on his sword…which is something I thought was reserved for characters in Shakespearean Tragedies.

The SWAT guys decided, allegedly, that the best thing to do with a suicidal guy on the edge of a rocky cliff was to shoot him with a taser.  Now, I’ve never been shot with a taser, but my recollections of seeing news stories of intrepid reporters volunteering to be shot with a taser stirred memories of complete loss of bodily control.

So, yeah, they shot the guy with the taser, he fell off the cliff and died.  Top notch police work there, guys.

Here’s a video news report about the incident from KABC News 7 in Los Angeles.

The man’s name, by the way, was Stephen Hill.
