Use The Weapon You Have At Hand

And if that happens to be a bearded battleaxe, well then… Victim uses battle axe to fend off home invader.

He was mad that his former girlfriend was dating a “nerd” who played video games. Or something. Except it isn’t just about video games.

The suspect knocked on the door repeatedly, then kicked it in, while Ball was in his apartment playing video games and watching Rick and Morty.

Ball said he had reason to believe the suspect had a firearm.

“(The) door opened, (I) grabbed the axe, (then) step, step, hit.”

The video goes on, and on, but it does include a nice picture of the axe.

The suspect spent a night in a local hospital with “substantial wounds” before being taken to the county lockup.

Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Jim VanDyken said avoiding confrontation with a robber is usually the best course, but he says people have a right to defend themselves, especially in their own home.
