Man Held on $1500 Bond for Shooting TV

bristol-palinA lot of people are having a hard time understanding why Bristol Palin is on Dancing With the Stars.  More people are having trouble understanding why she is STILL on Dancing with the Stars.  I don’t watch the show, but apparently she is not that good and her votes are being attributed to the Tea Party.  I can’t make this stuff up.  I can also not make up the fact that a Wisconsin man is being held on $1500 bond because he pulled a gun and shot his TV over frustration that Bristol Palin was still on DWTS. 

The man, 67 year old Steven Cowan of rural Black Eartch, Wisconsin…again, I can’t make this stuff up…will be on house arrest if he posts the bond.  He is being charged with second-degree reckless endangerment, which is a felony.  According to police he fired his shotgun at his TV on Monday night and then pointed it at his wife.  She must have voted for Bristol.  His wife promptly called 9-1-1 and before the police took him into custody, he held them at bay for 15 hours.

Cowans wife claims he suffers from bi-polar disorder and other mental problems to which I say “duh”.
