Mr. and Mrs. Charming — He's Got a Machete, She's Drunk — Terrorize the Sunset

In response to the common San Francisco notion that nothing ever happens out in the avenues — and in an homage to the NBA's latest line of advertisements — we present you with a new slogan — The Sunset: Where machete-wielding crazies and their inebriated girlfriends happen.

In the wee hours Sunday morning, a bevy of police pulled up to a house in the 2200 block of 45th Avenue, responding to calls that a man swinging about a machete was terrorizing his neighbors, accompanied by his plastered girlfriend. The half-dozen cops attempted to get the man to give up quietly — but the combination of big knives, drunken girlfriends, and God knows what else didn't lend itself to cooperation with the authorities.
