OK, so I was upset about Bristol Palin’s “Dancing with the Stars” performance and all, but it would never occur to me to do this: A man in Wisconsin was so angered by her dance that he shot his TV set! Not only that, but then he turned the gun on his wife, who luckily managed to escape before the whole thing turned into a SWAT standoff.
Steven Cowan was mad because he thought, like so many of us, that Bristol does not dance well and that she’s only staying on the show because of mama (grizzly) Sarah Palin. The Vermont, Wis., resident pulled out his shotgun and expressed himself Monday night, and it took until Tuesday morning for police to talk him out of the house.
Cowan, who is bipolar, has been charged with second-degree reckless endangerment and could receive 10 years in prison. On the bright side, the fact that he was in police custody last night when Bristol made the “Dancing with the Stars” 2010 finals kept him from shooting his refrigerator.
