Drunken Sword Fight Results In Two Arrests, One Hospitalization

No good can come out of a drunken sword fight.

In St. Lucie County, Florida, a confrontation involving an 18-inch sword sent one person to a hospital in serious condition. Two others were arrested.

The sheriff's office identified the suspects as 60-year-old William L. Luciano and his 48-year-old roommate, Patricia D. Best.

The attack happened Monday night.

The arrest report says a witness saw Luciano swinging the sword and yelling.

The report says he told authorities he was defending his roommate.

Luciano faces several charges, including aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. No further information has been released.

Authorities said all three involved were drunk.

    What idiots ! Swords may be ancient weapons, but they're as deadly today as they ever were. I guess advanced age is no guarantee of good sense. Yet one more reason why I don't drink.
