Romantic rivals armed with "Legend of Zelda" sword and flower pot square off in Texas. Gianna Caserta reports.
(KPRC) "Swords and flower pots; it sounds nuts, he is psycho," Eugene Thompson admitted after wounding his girlfriend's ex-husband in a bizarre brawl.
According to deputies with Texas' Harris County Sheriff's Office Thompson got into an argument with his girlfriend Saturday night.
That's when his girlfriend called her estranged husband, who stopped by the house around 10 p.m.
Thompson's girlfriend let the man inside. Thompson said he ran to the back bedroom and told the man to leave the house, but he refused and started charging at him. That's when Thompson says he grabbed his replica master sword from 'The Legend of Zelda.'
"I heard him heading to the bedroom where I was, so I jumped in the closet and I grabbed one of my replica swords, and I pulled it out and stood at the doorway, and he was coming down the hallway at me while I was yelling, 'Go away, you don't live here' and he just walked right into the point of the sword, I don't know if he thought it was a toy," said Thompson.
