Just how big was that sword?

I always have a fascination with quirky stories, and I love this one. Why was this guy decide to go strolling around naked in his yard? What was he doing...reading, picking flowers, doing jumping jacks? Why did he have a 2 1/2-feet long sword in his house? And most importantly, which dangerous weapon was he charged with displaying? Inquiring minds want to know!

P.S....can you tell it's the end of a long day?

Naked Man Threatens Neighbors With Sword

NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa - A man threatened his neighbors with a sword after they complained about him being naked in his front yard, police said. Curtis Rarick, 44, was charged with assault while displaying a dangerous weapon.

Rarick had been naked in his yard and became angry when neighbors asked him to put clothes on Sunday afternoon, police said. He went inside and came back out with a 2 1/2-feet long sword and began threatening the neighbors, court records show.

He was released from jail Monday after posting $2,000 bond. If convicted, Rarick could face up to two years in jail and a $5,000 fine. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 7.
