Choose Your Weapon

14 09 2010

My friend Vickie sent me the following article. I must have mentioned that I was thinking of taking ukulele lessons, but I can see how a uke wouldn’t stand a chance against frying pans and knives. I guess I’ll have to play nice if I choose the ukulele.

Overland Park Man Uses Banjo in Self-Defense

Attacked by a man wielding a frying pan and a knife, an Overland Park man swung his banjo.

Police say the banjo blow to the head stopped the assailant, who was treated for a cut and is now in jail awaiting charges.

The incident happened about 9 p.m. Monday at an apartment in the 7600 block of Shawnee Mission Parkway, police said.

The two 21-year-old men were drinking and arguing about a band when one of them grabbed the kitchen weapons and attacked, police said.

The victim happened to have banjo in hand and used it in self defense, they said.

The smell of alcohol was prevalent, police said.
