The 19-year-old thought it’d be a better idea to fight crime by allegedly dressing up as a ninja. Obviously, the police didn’t agree and neither did the residents he ended up scaring the crap out of.
Kapcsos was charged with loitering, prowling at night and disorderly conduct, according to Huffington Post. Police claim that Kapcsos frightened elderly residents in his neighborhood after they spotted him running around wearing a black hoodie, mask and gloves and carrying a baseball bat. No grappling hook? No self respecting ninja would go out on patrol without a grappling hook! Then again, no self respecting ninja would actually fight crime since, historically, they were just hired assassins.
Kapcsos told WJAC-TV that he just wanted to help the police out and catch the bad guys. And he did that by hiding in the bushes, “curling up into a ball” to look “like a rock” and hiding in the shadows. You know, the normal stuff that’s totally effective in fighting crime.
In his defense, ninjas are cool. God knows I spent my childhood trying to be a ninja but not everyone has what it takes. At a certain age you have to accept the fact that there’s only one American Ninja and that’s Michael Dudikoff.
