Greeley Man Arrested For Swinging Swords At Vehicles
A man was arrested...and rightfully so for standing in the street and swinging swords at people and yelling at them as they passed by in their car.
According to a Facebook post by the Greeley Police Department, just before 11 P.M. on Monday, authorities received calls about a man who was harassing vehicles around 18th Avenue and 2nd Street.
One caller reported that the man was 37-year-old Patrick Morado, who was armed with two Katana swords, which has a curved, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands.
When officers arrived, they found Morado just hanging out in the street swinging swords and cussing up a storm. They asked him to stop, he said no (or some other things of the sort) so officers kicked up their efforts to a bit stronger level and finally got him to drop his swords.
That's when they moved in quickly and apprehended the suspect, who was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries during the apprehension.
Once he left the hospital, Morano was booked into the Weld County jail on nine counts of first-degree assault and menacing.
Life tip of the day: DON'T be a menace to society.
Thankfully no serious injuries were reported to any bystanders, officers...or vehicles.
