    Man who mistook porn screams for rape charged after breaking into apartmentOCONOMOWOC, Wis. (AP) — A man says he broke into an apartment with a cavalry sword because he thought he heard a woman being raped, but the sound actually was from a pornographic movie his upstairs neighbor was watching.
    "Now I feel stupid," said James Van Iveren, who has been charged in the case. "This really is nothing, nothing but a mistake."
    According to a criminal complaint, the neighbor told police that Van Iveren pounded on the door and kicked it open without warning Feb. 12, damaging the frame and lock.
    "Where is she?" Van Iveren demanded, thrusting the sword at the neighbor, the complaint said. "Where is she?"
    The neighbor told police Van Iveren became increasingly aggressive as he repeated the question, insisting that he had heard a woman being raped. The complaint said that, with the sword pointed at him, the neighbor led Van Iveren throughout the apartment, opening closet doors to prove he was alone.

    The neighbor later played for police the part of the DVD he believed Van Iveren heard downstairs.
    Van Iveren, 39, of Oconomowoc, was charged with criminal trespass, criminal damage and disorderly conduct, all while using a dangerous weapon, and is due in court March 5. Together, the misdemeanor counts carry a maximum sentence of 33 months in jail.
    Van Iveren said Tuesday that he heard a woman "screaming for help," grabbed the sword, bounded up the stairs, kicked in the apartment door and confronted the man who lived there.
    "I intended to hold it behind my back and knock. But I froze and instead, what happened happened," he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
    Contesting his neighbor's account, Van Iveren said he didn't look anywhere in the apartment except the front room, and that he never threatened the neighbor with the sword.
    "I had the sword extended. But that was all," he said.
    Van Iveren, who lives with his mother in the downstairs apartment, said he did not call police when he heard the noises because he does not have a telephone. He said he barely knew the upstairs tenant.
    Police seized Van Iveren's sword, which he said was a family heirloom.

    The guy watching the porn was probably too busy waxing his own sword to make a full on attack with the guy that kicked down the door.:D

    yeah, this is all just a misunderstanding... IMO they should make him pay to repair everything, but piling a bunch of BS crimical charges on this guys record is just lame. He was trying to help, and didn't hurt anyone...

    I dunno, he may have scared the guy so bad that he pinched the head off......





    I agree though, the dumbass meat pounder should have had his volume a little lower, the swordsman was acting with good intent.

    He will most likely just get an appearance ticket unless the whacker presses charges, I say settle it for the cost of the repairs and a meatloaf.
