Lyle Monroe Bensley, 19, is far from the vision of those sparkling bastards seen in the Stephenie Meyer series. He actually has character (Bah dum tssh)! See, Lyle thinks he’s a 500 year old vampire.
With a body covered in tattoos and wearing only boxer shorts, this lunatic forced his way into an apartment on Seawall Boulevard in Galveston and made his way into the bedroom of a woman -whose name has not been released- to uh… feed.
What a romantic.
During the course of biting and hitting of the woman in her bed, Bensley made growling and hissing noises. You see what happens when you read too much Twilight now kids? Thankfully this woman was able to break free, but only after Bensley dragged her out of the apartment. Getting away in a car driven by a neighbor who happened to be in the area at the time.
Galveston police officer Daniel Erickson said he and another officer were in the woman’s apartment building when they heard shrieking. After investigating the growling sounds and seeing Bensley in the parking lot, they gave chase and captured him shortly thereafter.
Police spokesman Capt. Jeff Heyse said “He was begging us to restrain him because he didn’t want to kill us,” Officer Erickson said. “He said he needed to feed.” According to Erickson, Bensley said “I’m a vampire, and I’ve been alive for over 500 years.” Emergency medical personnel determined that Bensley did not appear to be under the influence of drugs (or V for you True Blood fans), a mental health hold was placed on Bensley and his bond was set at $40,000.
