Lyle Bensley, a 19-year old teen from Galveston (Texas), seems to have taken True Blood a little too seriously! He broke into a complete stranger’s apartment early Saturday morning wearing only his boxer shorts. He then walked into the resident’s bedroom, and began making “growling and hissing noises” while “biting and hitting” her, claiming that he was a vampire. Even at the time of arrest, he told that cops to restrain him so that he doesn’t kill them and he needed to feed.


Bensley made growling and hissing noises while biting and hitting the woman in her bed, Heyse said. Bensley then dragged her out of the apartment and she broke free.

She ran into the parking lot where she got into a car driven by a neighbor. Bensley beat on the car before it sped away, Heyse said.

Police received a call at 6:50 a.m. Erickson said he and another officer were in the woman’s apartment when they heard shrieking and growling sounds and saw Bensley in the parking lot. They arrested him after a short chase.

“I’m a vampire, and I’ve been alive for over 500 years,” Bensley said, according to Erickson.



According to the police, he didn’t appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Vampire? I think he watched too many “True Blood” episodes in a row!
