According to WMTW.com, the events happened something like this:
Officers were called to the Eastern Avenue home at about 9 a.m. When they arrived, they said a man confronted them, wielding the deadly spud-skinner.Tasers were used to subdue the fellow. Too bad he didn't have any potatoes on hand, they could have tried the tasers on them and gotten some fries out of the deal.
Apparently realizing that he was no match for the police, the man dropped the peeler and ran into a nearby apartment. Police said he then came out, this time holding a knife.
