Eugene police were called to a convenience store at 1:24 a.m. about the incident. Officers found Ryan Nicholas Garner, who has no known address, sitting on a nearby park bench, still holding the large stick. Police said as they approached, they could see Garner repeatedly taking off his shirt and putting it back on. Once Garner spotted the officers, he allegedly charged at them, screaming and taking a fighting stance. Then, while officers called for backup, he allegedly began removing all of his clothing.
According to a sworn statement from CPD investigators, the victim told police that earlier on Tuesday he was given $80 to buy drugs, but the seller gave him fake drugs and he didn't figure that out until after the sale. He couldn't find the person who sold him the fakes and couldn't find drugs to replace the fakes, then he started receiving threatening text messages from a phone number he was not familiar with saying he owed that person $80 and needed to pay or they would have their sons find him.
The famous Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab is getting some powerful new hardware.

According to the [Kyoto-based] High-Tech Crime Task Force, the Okayama police, and the Saga police, the Osaka-based suspect uploaded about a thousand files, including anime. The suspect admitted that he thought he would not get caught because he was using Perfect Dark.
Perfect Dark is the third generation of japanese anonymous P2P network clients, developed with the intent to fix the security flaws found in its predecessors Winny and Share, in spite of also adopting a "Secure through Obscurity" closed-source model. In 2004, Winny's developer, Isamu Kaneo, was charged 1.5 million yen for assisting in copyright infringement, but he was acquited last October. Since 2008, at least 15 people were arrested in Japan suspect of uploading copyrighted material to those "secure" networks."
