Cuff ‘Em: Yes, Those Are The Black Marker Face Scrawlings Of A Drunk Indiana Guy Who Was Swinging A Sword At A Homeless Couple

Ricky Lee Kalichun, 45, got a little drunk this week and turned in our Busted Coverage Mug Shot of the Week®.

We’ll be sending him a case of Sharpies and a copy of Madden ’11 we had sitting around the office.

Take it away, Evansville (Indiana) Courier & Press:

An Evansville man who allegedly painted his face and tried to attack someone with a sword early Wednesday was arrested, according to an Evansville Police Department probable cause affidavit.

Ricky Lee Kalichun, 45, is in Vanderburgh County jail on a $50,000 cash bond. He has been preliminarily charged with intimidation with a weapon and public intoxication.

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.

And here we pictured Evansville as a city where people got drunk and beat their wives. WRONG!

At what point in a good drunk do you get out the markers and start going John Rambo with your face? After a fifth of Gentleman Jack? Look, it’s winter time and people have plenty of time on their hands. It seems Ricky had an extra hour or two to conceive a plan where he’d butcher a couple of random people. It’s all good, Rick. You’ll sleep this one off, come back strong and face a judge who’ll reiterate that you’re a complete moron who should seek some counseling for drinking.

We say that is a bunch of crap. Just learn to pace yourself. The blackout stage shouldn’t come at midnight. That is a sign of weakness.

Do you know Rick and want to show us more of his face paintings from back in the day? Email us.
