WALDORF, Md. -

A Waldorf man attempted to fend off police with a very bold, ninja-like tactic.

Michael Peter Truckner, 42, had an open warrant charging him with violating his probation for a DWI arrest. Police arrived at Truckner’s house at the 1000 block of Floyd Avenue on November 15 to serve him his arrest warrant.

Once he spotted the officers, Truckner immediately ran to the side of his house to grab a five-foot long cylinder object that resembled a broom handle. Truckner pulled the cylinder apart and separated it into two two-feet swords.

Truckner held a sword in each hand and took up a fighting stance.

The officers proceeded by pulling out their firearms and tasering Truckner. Truckner’s mother then appeared out of nowhere, grabbed the swords and refused to drop the weapons.

One officer shot off his gun to try to gain control of Ingrid Truckner but she wasn’t injured.

Truckner was subdued and placed under arrest. He is charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, possession of a dangerous weapon, resisting arrest and violation of probation for a DWI.

His mother, Ingrid Truckner, was arrested and is charged with assault, hindering and failure to obey a lawful order.

Ingrid Truckner’s 15-year-old grandson was also arrested after he attempted to hinder in both arrests.

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) -- Spacewalking astronauts launched a tiny Peruvian research satellite Monday, setting it loose on a mission to observe Earth.

The nanosatellite gently tumbled as it cleared the vicinity of the orbiting complex, precisely as planned. "One, two, three," someone called out in Russian as Artemiev let go of the sate...
