    "500-year-old Vampire" Attacks, Bites Woman in Texas: 'He Said He Needed to Feed'

    SOURCE --> SYDNEY MORNING HERALD http://www.smh.com.au/world/he-said-he-needed-to-feed-man-who-says-hes-500yearold-vampire-charged-after-biting-woman-20110818-1iyty.html

    'He said he needed to feed': man who says he's 500-year-old vampire charged after biting woman

    August 18, 2011 - 2:06PM


    Says he's a vampire ... Lyle Monroe Bensley.

    A US teenager claiming to be a 500-year-old vampire with a "need to feed" has been charged after allegedly breaking into a woman's home before biting and hitting her.

    Lyle Monroe Bensley, 19, allegedly broke into the woman's apartment in Galveston, Texas, dressed in only boxer shorts, making growling and hissing noises while bitting and hitting her in her bed, the Houston Chronicle said.

    He dragged her out of the apartment but she broke free and ran away, police spokesman Captain Jeff Heyse told the Chronicle.

    The woman was not known to Mr Bensley.

    When police arrived at the apartment, they saw Mr Bensley hissing and growling in the car park.

    He managed to climb two fences before he was arrested, and yelled that he "didn't want to have to feed on humans", Captain Heyse told US broadcaster ABC.

    "I've dealt with some really strange people. You know, guys who think they're Jesus and that. But I've never seen anything like this."

    Another police officer, Daniel Erickson, told the Chronicle: "He was begging us to restrain him because he didn't want to kill us. He said he needed to feed."

    "I'm a vampire, and I've been alive for over 500 years," Mr Bensley reportedly said to Mr Erickson.

    A US clinical psychologist told the ABC popular films and television shows such as the Twilight series and True Blood could inspire people with mental illnesses.

    "Vampires are very prominent in our society right now from a pop culture standpoint. And that information can feed into hallucination," Associate Professor Josh Klapow of the University of Alabama at Birmingham said.
    "If you look at the content of these sorts of hallucinations, even though the characters are slightly different, the themes tend to be similar. The richer the content, the more prevalent it is, and the more nuances there are to it, the easier it becomes to run with."

    Mr Erickson said paramedics did not find Mr Bensley to be under the influence of drugs.

    Mr Bensley was held on a $US40,000 ($38,000) bond and was awaiting a mental health examination.

    How much would one blame the individual ("crazy" or not) for their behavior seemingly inspired by pop culture fads, and how much the movies or whatever they choose to ape to give shape to their crazy behavior?

    I admit, I like Alexander Skarsgård <3. It is sad that True Blood has actually destroyed the theme of the books. There is no interracial, homosexual scenes in the books. The show is promoting disgusting diversity in such an unmoral way. What better way to brainwash people, then to control their views with something they love?

    As opposed to twilight, the True Blood vampire series portrays Vampires as how they should be. Blood hungry, exploding in the sun kind of fun . Twilight is disgusting crap as well. VAMPIRES do not sparkle in the sunlight. They explode after igniting, while leaving guts everywhere while trying to rip your throat out.

    I think this vampire phase is disrupting our youth.

    This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. VAMPIRES do not exist, and people need to stop romanticizing about them being friendly loving creatures that live in our every day world.

    Vampires have always been evil creatures in old folk tales.
    All things must come to the soul from it's roots, from where it is planted. The that is beside the running water is fresher, and gives more fruit.

    Being a Texan myself, I know how to handle this guy...

    Two (2 - remember "double tap") well-placed silver bullets in his vampire head.

    I would be more than happy to do it no charge.

    So there you have it.

    Or you could just incessantly pelt him with garlic.

    A US teenager claiming to be a 500-year-old vampire with a "need to feed" has been charged after allegedly breaking into a woman's home before biting and hitting her.
    She should have eaten her garlic or armed her home with it. Easiest, most inexpensive way to prevent this from happening from you. She shoulda saw it comin'.

    As awful as this is, it's still kind of funny.
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.
