Taking Dancing with the Stars too seriously

In Wisconsin, a man upset with Bristol Palin’s performance on the hit TV show Dancing with the Stars created a stand off with Dane County police. Give me an effing break. Get a life, people!

It was a long Monday night for some Dane County deputies.

They were called to a home south of Black Earth, when a woman reported her husband was intoxicated…armed…and suicidal.

Elise Schaeffer with the Sheriff’s Department tells us, “When our deputies arrived, he was held up in the house by himself.  He, at that point, fired a shotgun inside the house at a television set.  That’s when our Tactical Response and Hostage Negotiation teams responded.”

According to the criminal complaint, the shot that was fired by 66 year old Steven Cowan was because he was angry over the way Bristol Palin performed on Dancing with the Stars.

Communication between authorities and Cowan continued over the 15 hour standoff.  Neighbors and Cowan’s doctor also kept in touch with him.

Cowan finally surrendered peacefully around 11am on Tuesday.

He’s been booked into the Dane County Jail on a Domestic Disorderly Conduct charge and 2nd Degree Reckless Endangerment.

He’s been receiving care for mental issues.

 

Love the last line – DUH!
