    Naked, knife-wielding Washington Banjo player arrested

    Police called out Sunday to reports of a naked man wandering around a Vancouver, Washington suburb with a knife, found him outside his house where he refused to surrender.

    After a tense standoff, the suspect, Andrew Helmsworth, entered the house and came back - wearing a pair of shorts and carrying a banjo. He played the instrument for the officers until they were forced to subdue him with a non-lethal round.

    Helmsworth was arrested and charged with assaulting a family member.

    This fella was not naked, he was wearing khaki shorts. (Whew - thank goodness - nobody needs to see all THAT )

    From local media:

    "Officers were called to the 8500 block of NE 36th Circle after reports of a naked man walking around with a knife. When they arrived at the man’s home, he refused to surrender." http://www.kptv.com/story/29636603/v...zarre-standoff

    "Police were dispatched to a disturbance near Northeast 36th Circle and 86th Avenue at about 3:40 p.m after a 911 caller said his son tried to stab him, according to emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian. The suspect, who wasn’t wearing clothes, ran outside with a 4-inch kitchen knife, according to radio traffic." http://www.columbian.com/news/2015/j...ancouver-home/
