Sword Thief Taken Down by Medieval Wench

A man who attempted to steal a sword from a jousting match at the Colorado Renaissance Festival was arrested after he was tackled and taken down by a wench, The Daily News reports.

According to the report, a woman dressed as a medieval wench chased the man down, tackled him to the ground and put him in a headlock until her husband, dressed as a knight, held him down until police arrived.

Connor Ward, 22, was arrested for theft and attempted assault on a police officer after he reportedly resisted an officer who tried to handcuff him, police spokeswoman Deborah Sherman said.

Sherman also told the paper that Ward appeared to be drunk.
