SCA man defends hearth and home with a spear

Wichita Falls, Texas resident Thomas McGowan had a very bad day recently. He evaded the police by breaking into the home of SCA member Jimmy Morgan Jr., who defended himself with a spear, sending McGowan running into the street and the arms of the law. KFDX Fox-14 has the story.

Morgan said he used the resource he had from his hobby to defend himself. "It's called the SCA. It's a medieval fighting group and we do use spears and swords and things of that nature. I don't have a firearm so I have a short spear, very quick, very agile and very deadly."
