Man with bong attacks police dispatcher

GERMANTOWN, Wis. (AP) -- A 22-year-old man was wrestled to the ground in the Germantown Police Department Friday afternoon after threatening a dispatcher with a glass bong and a shotgun, police said.

The man walked into the department and handed a threatening note to the dispatcher at a her window around 5 p.m., police said.

As she read the note, he threw a glass bong at the bulletproof glass, police said. The bong shattered, but the window did not. He then pulled out a shotgun, but three officers using a taser and pepper spray were able to subdue him, police said.

"He did have his finger on the trigger but they were able to control him," said Germantown Police Chief Peter Hoell.

The man had been arrested several times in the past on burglary, disorderly conduct and drug charges, but the motive for Friday's attack was unclear, Hoell said.

What part of "bullet proof" glass did they need to explain that the bong shattered but the glass didn't?

Wait, look where it happened! Wisconsin, the land where they race lawnmowers!
