'Dancing With the Stars': Bristol Palin prompts man to shoot television
If you were upset about Brandy's elimination from "Dancing With the Stars," we seriously hope your Bristol Palin frustration didn't prompt you to shoot your television set, like it did a 67-year-old Wisconsin man.The AP reports Steven Cowan, of Vermont, Wisconsin, became so enraged with Bristol's performance during the Nov. 15 broadcast, he blasted his TV with a shotgun, prompting a stand-off with a SWAT team.
Oh, and in between the TV and the standoff, he pointed the gun at his wife -- a Palin supporter? -- who escaped to call the police. When they arrived on the scene, he refused to come out of the house. He stayed inside until Tuesday morning, when he was finally taken into custody.
Facing second-degree reckless endangerment charges, Cowan could receive up to 10 years in jail, $25,000 in fines and a lifetime of embarrassment at the Dane County Elks Lodge.
