He brought a sword to a gun fight, and got beaned.
Montasir Ishag was arrested Tuesday after allegedly charging San Bernadino County Sheriff's deputies with a drawn sword. According to a police report, the 33-year-old Rancho Cucamonga man hollered "Allah akbar" [sic] and came after police, who stopped him with a "less-than-lethal" shotgun that fires bean bags.
The Press-Enterprise reports that deputies responded to the house after a caller told dispatchers that his son was under the influence of meth and was having a bi-polar episode.
Frontpagemag.com rather tastelessly compared Ishag's confrontation to a famous scene in "Raiders of the Lost Ark," in which Indiana Jones unceremoniously dispatches a sword-wielding assailant.
The website also dug up a social media profile that fit the suspect's name, approximate age and location.
"My sense of humor is kinda weird and it takes time to understand it, but I LOVE to laugh," Ishag wrote on his Fubar.com profile.
It's doubtful he'll be amused by the attempted murder charges for his alleged attack on the deputies.
