A Portland, Oregon woman was on her way to work last Tuesday when her car was attacked by a man wearing chain mail and brandishing a sword.

The shield wielding warrior was able to puncture the woman's car several times before authorities arrived.

When the man, identified as Konrad Bass, was arrested he informed police that he was a "high-elf engaged in a battle with the evil Morgoth, who is a character from J.R.R. Tolkien's pre-Lord of the Rings anthology, "The Silmarillion."

He also told police that he was on LSD.

One of his claims is probably true.
