My Fo-Tay Trumps Your Katana

Down in my hometown of Gainesville, Florida:

Two members of a landscaping crew had to run for their safety Tuesday afternoon after police said a Gainesville man threatened them with a Samurai sword.

The crew were working near the home of Rishiraj Rajan Job, 34, of 4288 SW 22nd Lane at around 2 p.m. when he walked out his door holding the 3-foot-long sword “in a baseball bat position,’’ according to a Gainesville Police report.

The men dropped their equipment, ran and called police.

Job had gone back inside when police arrived and ordered him to come out. Job opened the door, still holding the sword, and told police, “Come get me,’’ the report said.

Officer Christopher Kesting drew his weapon told Job to drop the sword, which he did. Job told police he had been drinking and “acting stupid.’’ Job had four swords and several large knives, police said.


Wonder if both the cop and the perp were thinking of this famous movie scene?
