A naked man holding a “Samurai”-type sword was arrested after a bizarre New Year’s Day standoff with police in San Jose.

Coco Bennett naked man samurai sword police arrestSeveral people called 911 to report a man standing in front of a home with an assault rifle, but as police arrived to the scene, witnesses report the man drove away – he was then pulled over.

Police said the suspect immediately got out of his car and started yelling, “You’re going to have to kill me.”

He was naked and holding a large “Samurai”-type sword, according to police.

One witness told NBC Bay Area that the man was pacing back and forth waving the sword at times.

San Jose Police Department “Crisis Intervention Team” members were called to the scene and a standoff began.

Coco Bennett, 29, was taken into custody without incident.

Police said he would be evaluated by doctors.

An AR-15-type assault rifle was recovered, according to police.

    FIRST, I WANT TO TYPE, I AM A NUDIST. I WAS RAISED IN A PSEUDO-NUDIST FAMILY. MY FATHER, TWO OLDER BROTHERS AND I WERE NUDE OFTEN AT HOME. [My mother and three sisters remained clothed]. I HAVE ENJOYED PUBLIC NUDITY IN THE MOUNTAINS OF ARKANSAS, RURAL-NORTHERN MISSISSIPPI AND THE STREETS OF MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE.

    WHEN I WAS IN JUNIOR-HIGH SCHOOL [SEVENTH-THROUGH-NINTH GRADES], I WAS FORCED TO RECEIVE COUNSELLING FOR, “sexually deviant-behavior.”

    I AM TELLING YOU THIS BECAUSE THIS ARTICLE STATES Coco Bennett WILL BE “evaluated by doctors.” IF Mr. Bennett HAD HIS CLOTHES ON, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ARRESTED FOR ATTEMPTED AGGRAVATED-ASSAULT ON POLICE OFFICERS, WITH A DEADLY WEAPON. BUT – BECAUSE HE WAS NUDE – SOCIETY THINKS IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE “his head is screwed on tight;” SIMPLY BECAUSE AMERICAN CULTURE IS SET TO THE Victorian Age WHEN IT COMES TO MALE PUBLIC-NUDITY.

    Mr. Bennett IS PSYCHOLOGICALLY “SOUND.” BUT, HE MAY REALIZE “PLAYING ALONG” WITH A THERAPIST MIGHT SAVE HIM FROM JAIL-TIME.

    THE NUDIST LIFESTYLE IS REAL;AND, WE WHO PRACTICE IT ARE NOT MENTALLY IMPAIRED.
