Phoenix Police Investigating Light-Rail Ninja Incident

The Light Rail ninja.
Despite the initial report, Phoenix police say the incident involving a guy with a Samurai sword on the Metro Light Rail was reported, and it's under investigation.

Phoenix police Sergeant Steve Martos says the incident appears to have occurred around 2 a.m. on October 13, which wasn't really clear based on the description from the person who uploaded the video to YouTube.

"The incident is currently under investigation and the suspects have not been located," Martos says. "It appears the individual with the sword helped to stop the fight."

Indeed, the folks fighting just happened to find their exit at the next stop after that sword was pulled.

Meanwhile, a thread on the video that was linked in our comments section in a previous post brings up some great Light Rail tales, but also the old adage about not pulling your weapon unless you're willing to use it.

"In this case that would have meant what, [disemboweling] or maiming some guys over a brawl on a bus?" one person asks.

Luckily for everyone, it turned into a somewhat funny YouTube video instead of a bloodbath.

The video can be found below, in case you missed it (or want to see it again):

I would like to see him try to swing that sword and actually use it, without getting it stuck and being horribly beaten. Only a moron would pull out a sword in a tight space like that, he didn`t think it thru but he was convinced his sword looked really badass.

how sad is it when you feel safer on the train because there is a nut job with a sword on your train instead of one of the transit cops?
