A man has been arrested in Oregon after attacking a woman’s car dressed as an elf and armed with a sword.
The woman called 911, telling police that a ‘pirate’ was attacking her car.
According to katu.com, the man, dressed in chain-mail and helmet and carrying a sword, shield and staff, had run into traffic in Northeast Portland and attacked the red BMW.
Arriving police arrested Konrad Bass, of Glendale, Oregon.
But Mr Bass told officers that he wasn’t a pirate but a ‘high elf engaged in battle with the evil Morgoth’.
Mr Bass was cited for criminal mischief and taken to hospital.
He told officers that he had taken LSD.
For those not familiar with Morgoth, he is the chief antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, and the source of all evil.
He looks absolutely nothing like a BMW.
