Man shoots TV over Palin 'Dancing' success

A man shot his TV after becoming angry that Bristol Palin had made the final of Dancing With The Stars, it has been reported.


Steven Cowan was watching the show on Monday when politician Sarah Palin's daughter was voted through to the final stage of the dancing competition, while high-scoring Brandy was sent home.

According to The Smoking Gun, Cowan's wife told police that her husband "jumped up and swore... Steven was upset that a political figure's daughter was on this show when Steven did not think that she was a good dancer."

The 67-year-old then got his shotgun and fired a round at the TV screen, resulting in a 15-hour stand-off with police in his home town of Vermont, WI, Reuters reports. He later surrendered and was charged with reckless endangerment and use of a dangerous weapon.

The producer of Dancing With The Stars recently defended Bristol's controversial success on the show, brushing off claims that viewers are voting politically because of her mother.
