"German police have arrested a man who was wielding a samurai sword outside a railway station in Hamburg.
The man brandished the sword at workers at Hamburg's Rauhes Haus train station after attempting to leave the station without a ticket.
He fled the scene and station staff called the police. He was then captured on film swinging the ancient sword violently at armed police as they attempted to disarm him.
They eventually managed to overpower the man with the help of a broom and no shots were fired. The man was detained by police in the parking lot of a nearby hotel."http://www.itv.com/news/world_376bdbb9f9c6455502c04b5fb652503e.html
