“OCONOMOWOC, Wisconsin (AP) — A man says he broke into an apartment with a cavalry sword because he thought he heard a woman being raped, but the sound actually was from a pornographic movie his upstairs neighbor was watching.

“Now I feel stupid,” said James Van Iveren, who has been charged in the case. “This really is nothing, nothing but a mistake.”

According to a criminal complaint, the neighbor told police that Van Iveren pounded on the door and kicked it open without warning February 12, damaging the frame and lock.”

CPS political analysts suggest this as another reason to encourage Midwest secession.

    Hey! Not everyone who resides in Wisconsin is batshit. At least, not in a bad way. I’d like to remain part of the USA, thank you very much. 🙂
