      'High-elf' battling evil Morgoth attacks Oregon woman's car

      A Portland, Oregon woman got a surprise when she drove her red BMW into an intersection and was attacked by a sword-wielding high elf.

      A man dressed in full armor, complete with chain-mail, helmet, shield, sword and staff ran into the busy intersection and started attacking the woman??s car, according to KATU in Portland.

      She called 911, saying a ??pirate?? was attacking her BMW.

      Konrad Bass, of Glendale, Oregon, was detained when police arrived on the scene.

      Bass told officers he was in no way a pirate, but was, in fact, a ??high-elf engaged in battle with the evil Morgoth.??

      Morgoth is a character created by J.R.R. Tolkien in a prequel to the Lord of the Rings novel.

      Bass admitted to officers that he had taken LSD prior to the incident.

      Bass was charged with criminal mischief, and the red BMW suffered several punctures.
