Sword Swallower Arrested For Carrying Swords

swords.jpg

We live in peculiar times. How so? Well, news reaches us that a reputed sword swallower has been arrested in New York for, wait for it, ‘brandishing a sword in public’.

Chayne Hultgren, aka The Space Cowboy – maybe Jamiroquai had a ‘word’ with the cops – was nabbed by the NYPD while busking. After entertaining a crowd with his sword swallowing exploits he was arrested by officious/safety conscious (delete as appropriate) officers and locked up for 24 hours.

Hultgren, sorry The Space Cowboy, is no stranger to notoriety: he has set a number of world records for swallowing blades. Last year he swallowed 18 72cm blades in his native Australia.

Have a ganders at some of his tricks below.
