Meanwhile In Southern California: Guy Chases Another Guy With Samurai Sword
By Nadia Noir
Jason Chad Johnson, a homeless dude in Seal Beach, might not have a place to rest his head, but he definitely took some cues from the Games of Thrones premiere and this weekend’s opening of the Renaissance Faire.
Brandishing a samurai sword, the man attacked Donald Underdale at Leisure World Retirement Community when he was walking his dog last Thursday night. Riding his trusty steed/a bicycle, Johnson rode by and then jumped off, running after Underdale.
“When I finally said stop, he comes off of that bicycle and just calm as can be, he comes off of that bicycle and pulls that sword out and he comes running after me and he says, ‘What are you going to do now?'”
According to LAist, another resident smartly recognized that he “couldn’t have been too well in his head, because this day, nobody goes with a sword around.”
We saw like hundreds of dudes with swords at Ren Faire yesterday, but they were respecting the ancient laws of LARPing nerddom.
