Attacker in USA fended off with new Martial Art – (Candy) Cane Fu, or: who needs Kwai-Chang Kane

Can you imagine using a lawn ornament to subdue a madman? USA Today says that’s what a guy from Sacramento did to stop one of his neighbours who went off –

Police spokesman Sgt. Norm Leong says the man used the two-foot-tall plastic ornament to subdue the attacker until officers arrived.

He says the 49-year-old suspect became intoxicated, went over to a neighbor’s home on Thanksgiving and began waving a kitchen knife at people gathered on the lawn.

He cut several peoples’ clothing before one of them decided to fight back.

The knife-wielder was arrested on use of a deadly weapon with intent to harm, but the guy who used the candy cane was deemed self-defense… You could say he gave the assailant – A CANING? Groan! Season’s Greetings!!
