Wisconsin Man Shoots TV, Points Gun at Wife After Seeing Bristol Palin on 'Dancing With the Stars'A Wisconsin man shotgun-blasted his television after seeing Bristol Palin on 'Dancing With the Stars,' resulting in a 15-hour standoff with police just outside the town of Black Earth.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports that Steven Cowan, 66, was watching the ABC program with his wife on Monday when he jumped up and began shouting about "the (expletive) politics" when Sarah Palin's daughter appeared. Cowan was drinking and has been receiving care for stress and a mental health issue.

"Cowan went upstairs for about 20 minutes and returned, demanding his pistols, which had been taken by his daughter about a month ago for safety reasons. He was carrying a single-shot shotgun, which he loaded and fired into the television," the Journal reports. "Cowan continued to yell, demanding his pistols. He re-loaded the shotgun and pointed it toward his wife. She left the house and drove to Black Earth, where she called 911. She told police she was afraid for her safety."
