Mugshot of the Year? Marker-Faced Man Attacks Friend With Sword


Ricky Lee Kalichun, 45, wanted his video game console back. That's at least what he claimed when he showed up at a friend's apartment drunk with marker all over his face and wielding a sword.

Kalichun, of Evansville, Indiana, was arrested and charged with intimidation with a weapon and public intoxication. That arrest produced a mugshot that could be considered the best of the early year.

The Evansville Courier & Press explains the incident:

According to the affidavit, a man called police about 12:24 a.m. and reported that Kalichun tried to attack him in the hallway of an apartment building at 315 SE King Blvd.

Police said they found Kalichun on the fourth floor with a camouflage coat and black marker markings on his face and immediately arrested him.

Police said Kalichun smelled strongly of alcohol and had a large sword on him.

The victim — who told police he and his wife were homeless and had been staying with someone at the apartment — said he got word that an intoxicated man was downstairs and needed his help, the affidavit said.

The victim told police he used to room with Kalichun and had him come up to the apartment. Kalichun then allegedly began unplugging a television and stated that a video game console and some games were his.

The occupants then got Kalichun in the hallway, the affidavit said, and he allegedly pulled out the sword and began swinging at the victim.
