Wisconsin Man Shoots TV Over Bristol Palin's Dancing Performance

A Wisconsin man has been arrested after he fired a gun at his TV when Bristol Palin performed on Dancing with the Stars and then held police at bay in a 15-hour standoff.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Dane County Circuit Court, Janice Cowan told police that her husband, Steven Cowan, 67, became enraged when Palin started dancing on Monday's show. She said he screamed, "the f---ing politics," because he was upset that Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, was still on the show since he believes she's not a good dancer.

The complaint said that Cowan, who had been under stress because of a financial situation and was being treated for a mental health problem, later retrieved his shotgun and fired it at the television. After demanding for the rest of his pistols, Cowan reloaded the shotgun and pointed it at his wife, the complaint said. Janice Cowan left the house and drove away to call 911, according to the complaint.
