Sometimes a remote control just isn’t good enough. A Wisconsin man shot his television Monday night in order to make the images of Bristol Palin’s awful dancing cease. We’ve all been there, haven’t we?
67-year-old Steven Cowan had settled in for a quiet night of watching Dancing With The Stars with his wife when Bristol Palin took to the stage. That’s when the evening took a turn. Her shoddy steps so enraged Steven that he reached for his shotgun and popped a few caps in his TV. And thus, a folk hero was born.
OK, we may have spoke too soon. Apparently the man then began wildly waving his gun around, causing his wife to flee the residence. Police were summoned and Steven barricaded himself in his home, leading to an all night standoff with a SWAT team. Finally the authorities were able to coax him out of the house, presumably in an elaborately choreographed song and dance number.
While being taken into custody, Steven was still fuming about young Palin’s poor dancing skills, and the fact that she was only on the show because of her famous mother.Ã‚Â Sources say Cowan suffers from bipolar disorder, and could face up to ten years in prison forÃ‚Â 2nd degree reckless endangerment. We hope he gets the help he needs, and than Bristol Palin never so much as Hokey Pokeys in public again.
