I guess the heat is making us all a little crazy!
I can't think of any other reason this poor soul would go this far! I kinda feel sorry for him, but you have to admit that he was at least trying something different by not using a gun, right?

BESSEMER, Pa. -- A Bessemer man was charged after police said he armed himself with a toilet, bottle of whiskey and a stick to stop a state trooper.
Police said Steven Herman was arrested after neighbors called to complain that he was being loud and tossing objects into his driveway. A judge waived all charges to court during a hearing on Thursday.
When officers arrived, they found Herman inside the attic of his Lawrence County home. Police said he tried to drop a 100 pound toilet on a trooper and then threatened the officer with a whiskey bottle and stick.
Police said they had to shock Herman with a Taser to subdue him. Aftwards he was taken into custody.
Herman's sister said she hopes that he can get help.
"I'm glad no one got hurt. He's hopefully going to get help out of this," Herman's sister said. "He's not a violent person. He was under the influence. I just want him to get help."
Herman is in the Lawrence County Jail on $10,000 bond. He is facing aggravated assault and terroristic threats charges.
I'm not sure if this was a case of too much whiskey, not enough brains, or a combination of both! He does get my vote for originality, though.
Let's get some coffee and sit out at the patio for a bit!
