Police officers arriving at the Charles J. Irving home, saw  Irving naked and holding the shotgun. When one officer pointed his handgun at Irving and ordered him to drop the weapon, Irving’s mother got between them. Irving eventually complied and walked outside, still naked, where he was arrested.

On Monday federal prosecutors charged Charles J. Irving, 27, of Kansas City, Kansas with being a felon in possession of a firearm. His mother told police that he was trying to protect her from vampires, according to the affidavit filed with the charge.

A witness told police that Irving began “demonic speaking” before pointing the shotgun at him. The witness ran upstairs and reported hearing two shotgun blasts.
