    Uses a sword to steal a cell phone

    There are two things about this story that intrigue me. First, the guy uses a sword. Second, the guy has just screwed his life up for a cell phone? Jeez, if you're going to risk a multiple year stay in the "gray bar motel" at least steal something worthy of the penalty.

    Spring Lake man charged with using sword in home invasion

    Spring Lake, N.C. A Spring Lake man forced his way into a house on South Conner Circle on Thursday and threatened the residents there with a 2-foot sword, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office.

    Jonathan Antonio Richardson, 19, of 713-A Eva Circle is charged first-degree burglary, robbery with a dangerous weapon and two counts of attempted robbery with a deadly weapon

    The victim told investigators that Richardson stole his cell phone.

    Richardson was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $170,000 secured bond.

    Not very sharp, is he?

    In a "game" of rock, paper, scissors, his choice of force could have been trumped by the average homeowner's choice. Hm. Interesting selection.

    Now we'll have to get our swords register and in Texas we have a CHL and not CCL. I'll bet the phone he was stealing was way cool......Moron.

    He can use the cell phone that he stole to call a lawyer to try and get his prison sentence reduced.

    Pretty smart guy.
