Jude Pischke was able to squat for 2 years in a home in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, before the law caught up with him.
See a video here, where near the end of the video, you can see him coming at a news crew with an axe:
Apparently he discovered that a bank owned the home, it had been pulled from sale, and he seized the opportunity. He moved in and paid the back taxes on the property to prevent it from being repossessed.
He had previously illegally moved a house to another property, which resulted in that home being condemned.
The bank that owned the home had not known what was happening there until the news crew alerted them to the issue.
Pischke pleaded guilty to one count of reckless aggravated assault in the case involving the Channel 5 news crew and received two years of probation, according to court documents.
The court also required Pischke vacate the home by Sunday and stay away from the property thereafter.
