Police: Stun Gun Subdues Man Armed With Medieval Weapons
ROYAL OAK, Mich. - Officers used a stun gun to take a Royal Oak man into custody after he attempted to fight them off with medieval weaponry, according to police. Police said Robert McClain sped away from the scene of a car crash at Twelve Mile and Campbell roads Wednesday night.
When officers went to his home, McClain was apparently in the basement and prepared to keep officers back with a 4-foot sword and a large mallet.
"One of the statements that he made is that, 'I got 1,000 years of power. Come and get me,'"
said Deputy Chief Chris Jahnke, of the Royal Oak Police Department. "And they looked down and he has this metal chain (and a) mesh guard (or) vest on, along with these leather gauntlets on his arms."
After dodging swords, chains and the mallet -- which were being thrown up from the basement -- officers used a stun gun to subdue McClain and arrest him, the station reported.
McClain was charged Thursday with assault.
If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison.
