    Drunken numchuk

    I like the sound of that. Drunken numchuk. Sounds like a great name for a punk band.
    Attack with sticks, get stuck in jail
    Man busted in attempted nunchaku attack
    William Carroll
    Posted: 09/24/2010

    ST. LUCIE COUNTY, Fla. - A 43-year-old man was arrested following a reported attempted nunchaku attack that didn't exactly rise to Bruce Lee standards.

    William Carroll, of the 1800 block of North 49th Street in Fort Pierce, for an "unknown reason" on Tuesday got upset with a man in the 3900 block of Avenue I, according to a recently released arrest affidavit.

    Carroll, who was too intoxicated to answer the questions of sheriff's investigators, grabbed a nunchaku and started "banging on the front door." After the man opened the door, Carroll allegedly tried to attack him with the nunchaku. The man punched Carroll in the head and sustained a possible broken hand during the fight. He wasn't hit by the nunchaku.

    Nunchaku, said to have originated in Okinawa, consists of two hard sticks joined by a short length of cord or chain. Lee put them to good use in the 1973 classic Enter The Dragon.

    When sheriff's deputies initially arrived, Carroll smelled of booze and had an "obvious" head injury. He was too intoxicated to answer questions and eventually ran from the crime scene, though investigators got him handcuffed in the 3800 block of Sloan Road.

    The affidavit didn't state where Carroll got the nunchaku or whether he'd seen Enter The Dragon, in which Lee's character is sent to infiltrate the island of a crime lord named Han through Han's martial arts tournament.

    Carroll entered the jail on charges including aggravated assault, burglary with assault or battery and resisting an officer without violence.

    two nunchuks

    Border officials confiscate nearly $1 million in goods in 2010
    January 26, 2011

    The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) came off a very busy month of December with a number of incidents involving people attempting to avoid paying GST or other taxes as well as a number of people being denied entry due to criminal records.

    In 2010, CBSA officers at North Portal alone, seized almost $1 million worth of goods and restricted, controlled and prohibited items from travellers entering Canada.

    With these seizures, some were held as forfeit while others were returned to the individuals after they paid penalties. Assessed penalties in 2010 totalled $203,639 while the goods seized were valued at $990,170.

    CBSA is also acknowledging International Customs Day today (Wed. Jan. 26) as the public’s way to recognize the contribution customs services make to Canada at their international borders and ports. The day is being marked in several ways across the country to acknowledge the valuable work being done by CBSA employees.

    As evidence of the type of work they do, it was reported that on Dec. 4, a North Dakota resident was denied entry into Canada when officers discovered through investigation that the subject had been charged with being in possession of marijuana, driving while intoxicated and was a fugitive from justice.

    ...

    On Dec. 31, a commercial driver from Texas was denied entry due to previous convictions for robbery and assault.
    On the first day of the month, an Alberta resident moving back to Canada declared a nunchaku and an over-capacity ammunition magazine, both of which are prohibited in Canada. While CBSA officers conducted an examination of the vehicle, they found a second nunchaku and two more over capacity ammunition magazines. All weapons and ammunition were seized and the traveller was issued a $1,000 penalty.
    Now why would you declare one and not the other?

    Am I the only one that noticed that almost all of these reports of Nunchaku arrests were in Yuba County, California?

    There's nothing up there but an Air Force base and a crap load of farm/ranch land. I'd expect a lot of reports of cattle tipping before Nunchaku arrests

    The Yuba incidences are an artifcat of the web

    I think we get so many Yuba reports because Yuba posts their police blotter online and that comes up high in the web searches. I'm more intrigued about how many numchuk wielders are drunks or stoners. Here's another one - with oysters no less.

    Hidden Nunchaku (that you don't miss a chance to advertise ), weeds (any ads on that for medical use?) and oysters (goes well with a can of cold beer) are nothing compare to hidden body in one's backyard. Australia is a big place one can hide almost anything for a long long time...

    I'm sure the author means "like Bruce Lee" not Jackie Chan... martial arts stars are so indistinguishable.
    NYC man arrested at casino for threatening man with nunchucks
    BY BOB KALINOWSKI, Staff writer
    Published: November 3, 2011

    A New York City man's Jackie Chan impersonation got him arrested early this morning at the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino in Plains Township.

    Police said Juan B. Soto, 43, of W. 46th St. in New York pulled a set of nunchucks on a stranger near the bus entrance of the casino around 1:40 a.m.

    Soto was charged with possessing a prohibited offensive weapon and simple assault.

    According to arrest papers:

    The victim, Albert Tucen, told police an unknown man, later identified as Soto, approached him and started "acting crazy." He said Soto then "pulled out a set of nunchucks and began swinging them around like Jackie Chan."

    Upon police arrival, a security officer pointed out Soto as the suspect. Police identified him through a welfare card in his possession, and later through digital fingerprinting.

    The security officer had seized the nunchucks and provided them to police.

    Soto was arraigned this morning in Wilkes-Barre Central Court by Magisterial District Judge Andrew Barilla. He was ordered jailed in the Luzerne County Correctional Facility in lieu of $2,000 cash bail.

    Bleeding Centralia Man Cited After ‘Bruce Lee’ Kung-Fu Kick of Church Window
    Posted: Wednesday, August 8, 2012 11:00 am
    By Stephanie Schendel sschendel@chronline.com

    Three Centralia men were cited and released for suspected malicious mischief early Tuesday morning after one of them admitted to police that he “karate kicked” a church window like “Bruce Lee,” according to Centralia police.

    Police responded to a call of three male suspects running away after breaking a window on the 200 block of North Washington Avenue at 1:52 a.m. Tuesday, said Sgt. Stacy Denham from the Centralia Police Department.
    Providence lg Rec

    The witness, who called 911, heard glass break and saw three men run down the block into an apartment building, where it turned out the suspects all lived, Denham said.

    Police contacted three individuals; Christopher T. Baker, 23, Centralia; Aaron M. Perez, 20, Centralia, and Kalin E. Maxwell, 20 of Centralia.

    When police contacted the men, they noticed Maxwell, who was shirtless, was bleeding from his hand, chest and from above his ankle.

    When police asked Maxwell about how he sustained his injuries, Maxwell allegedly told police he got the cuts from a wrestling match, Denham said.

    When that excuse didn’t work, Denham said, Maxwell then told police he fell while “trying to run up a wall.”

    When officers pointed out that the cuts weren’t consistent with injuries that could be sustained from wrestling or running up a wall, police said, Maxwell finally admitted that he “karate-kicked the church window like Bruce Lee.”

    Maxwell’s friends, Perez and Baker, then admitted to police that they were there when Maxwell kicked the window, and that they were “egging him on to kick the window.”

    All three men were cited and released, Denham said.

    Police do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor in the men’s behavior, which reportedly Maxwell admitted was “super idiotic.”
