The suspect probably wasn’t expecting that the owner was a participant in ritualized battle games with sharp medieval weapons. He finally gave up, ran, and was arrested. After leaving a trail of blood, of course.

    Ben Ball, 36, used a replica battle axe to keep the intruder at bay.

    Ben Ball, 36, was home watching TV and playing video games at around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night, when Alex Rawls, 33, pounded on his door several times, then suddenly kicked it in. Ball stated that Rawls used to date his former roommate, but she moved in order to distance herself from him. Rawls is a convicted felon.
