The Dangers of Delivering Furniture

OK, so this isn't exactly about intellectual property law and furniture, but the story caught our attention.

On August 30, 2010, Furniture Today reported that two furniture delivery men were taken hostage in Chattanooga, Tennessee when making a delivery. Apparently, the delivery men were held at gunpoint by a 76-year old man angry about an error with the furniture delivered to his house. The man, Thomas Gunn (yes, that's his real name), took the delivery men to the Select Comfort store at Hamilton Place Mall in an attempt to resolve the error.

Law enforcement spotted the three men, including Mr. Gunn's handgun, as they entered the mall and Mr. Gunn was taken into custody. Mr. Gunn has been charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault, and carrying an unlawful weapon.
