This week in Florida, a man was arrested after he threatened to kill his girlfriend as he challenged her to a naked sword duel. 36-year-old defense attorney Terry Lee Locy faces counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence battery. And the crazy part is, it really did all happen in the buff:
According to an arrest affidavit, Locy and his live-in girlfriend were arguing early Wednesday morning about his "drinking in excess." Locy then grabbed a mirror off a door and "raised it up as if he was attempting to strike" her, Agent Pamela Hibbs of the Brevard County Sheriff's Office wrote in the affidavit.I'm sorry. I know that domestic violence is no laughing matter. But when I see the phrase "naked sword duel," I laugh. It's a reflex. Fortunately, Locy was arrested before any such dueling happened, clothed or otherwise. More here: Attorney Challenged Girlfriend to Naked Sword Fight.
That's when the girlfriend grabbed the hook that the mirror had been hanging on and flung it toward Locy, who suffered a cut to his head.
After showering, a nude Locy handed a sheathed sword to his girlfriend and said, "You're going to need this," the court document states.
Locy then retrieved a larger sword, pulled it from the sheath and told her, "I'm going to kill you," the affidavit says.
