Batleth used in Colorado Springs robberies!

OK!, I don't know if this article can qualify as being fan related or not, but it's just too strange to pass up. Apparently someone used a Batleth to rob two Colorado Springs 7-11's in the same night.

Here's the article from Masked Man Robs Convenience Stores With Klingon Sword

What I find really interesting is that according to the article both of the 7-11 clerks who were robbed described the weapon as a "Batleth". Either they were fans, or their knowing what a Batleth is shows how prevelent Star Trek is in our society.

If you happen to know more about this incident, please send me an email, and I will update the article. Cheers! ~ Jim

UPDATE 02/05/09:  Accrding to this site, the weapon used in the robbery was not a Batleth, but instead a Kit Rae's Special Edition "Valdris which looks quite similar to a Batleth.
