Kurt William Havelock, a Tempe, AZ man who was denied a liquor license to open a bar, mailed a manifesto to media outlets stating that he would "shed the blood of the innocent." He drove to the Super Bowl with an assault rifle and 200 rounds.
Havelock parked near University of Phoenix Stadium, where pre-game festivities were taking place, and finally thought better of his plan. "He waited about a minute and decided he couldn't do this," said FBI agent Phillip Thorlin.
Havelock drove to his girlfriend's apartment and revealed what he had been about to do. "I will test the theory that bullets speak louder than words," he wrote in his manifesto. "Perhaps the blood of the inculpable will cause a paradigm shift."
