Werewolf of Ohio

A US man arrested for attacking people and growling at police officers blamed his behaviour on being bitten by a wolf.


Thomas Stroup, 20, told sherriff's deputies in Lorain County, Ohio, that he went on the attack every time the moon came out.

Police had been called to a campground after receiving reports of a "very violent", out of control man, reports the local Chronicle-Telegram.

Stroup had drunk too much alcohol and was fighting with other campers and had kicked a dog cage, his friend told officers.

Deputies found Stroup passed out under a trailer that had its door open, revealing numerous knives, swords and edged weapons.

They tried to wake him up but he wouldn't open his eyes and would only growl at them, the police report said.

Stroup, who spoke with a thick Russian accent, slurred his words and had difficulty standing, it continued.

As he was taken to a police cruiser, he reported yelled at a deputy:
"I'm going to kill your cousin, Keith!"

While en route to the Lorain County Jail, Stroup began apologising to deputies and said he had been scratched by a wolf and went on the attack whenever the moon came out.

Stroup, 20, of Sheffield Township was charged with underage drinking.

  6. Actually, The R00STER, wolves have been making a comeback in the Eastern United States over the last couple of decades. Some areas are actually over-populated with them now and they are killing off the native Bobcat populations due to superior hunting abilities.

  19. Some years ago a group of LARPers of my town decided to play Live World of Darkness. One of my neighbors called the police. The reason? They were making a (very lame) choreography with fake swords.
