CANTON, Ohio - A self-proclaimed ninja entered a home, pocketed a can of noodles and a pack of cigarettes and then climbed into bed with a man and his wife.

The Canton Repository (http://www.cantonrep.com/newsnow/x2064142971/Police-say-burglar-crawls-into-bed-with-Canton-couple), citing a police report, says that Michael C. Phillips, 22, apparently went through an unlocked door at the house located in the 1300 block of 13th Street SE. The incident occurred at approximately 2:45 a.m. Tuesday.

The occupants eventually realized that there was an extra person in bed, but could not keep Phillips from fleeing through a side or back door.

According to dispatcher notes, authorities caught up with Phillips shortly thereafter. Wearing a dark cap, he was found peering through a window of a home about a block away. At that point, officers took him into custody.

The 5'8"-tall, 160-pound Phillips, who also answers to the nickname Snake Eyes, explained to police that he is a ninja and that he knows mixed martial arts. The report, however, suggests that officers suspected Phillips was under the influence of drugs.

Phillips was charged with felony burglary and a misdemeanor count of possessing marijuana.

The couple at the house were not physically injured, according to the report.

I suppose that "...you claim to be a ninja and know MMA" would be a nice addition to the "You know that you've got issues when..." list.

This reminds me of that amazing thread 'Diary of a Teenage Ninja'. Except unfortunately this is in real life.

Talk about life imitating art.....

For a second here I thought this was a dupe thread of the latest WARNING video going viral.
