Shirtless Man Caught Wielding Samurai Sword Evokes ‘Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs’ Defense

Sword wielding man is cuckoo for coca puffs

After abandoning his car in the middle of a busy interstate, Cicero, Indiana man Bryon Womack stripped down to his shorts and shoes began marching along the side of the highway while swinging a 35-inch samurai sword “up and down in rhythm with his marching cadence.”

Well, it didn’t take long for the police to get involved, and after a brief struggle in which Womack tried to jump in another vehicle, he was cuffed and brought to the station, where he channeled Sonny The Cuckoo bird and blamed his erratic behavior on being “cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.”

Despite blaming the effects of the General Mills cereal, Womack was charged with attempted car jacking, resisting law enforcement and marijuana possession. The cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs defense, unlike the Twinkie defense, is sadly not admissible in a court of law.
