"Man Slashes Teen With Sword"

Want to get your point across about using drugs? Did you ever think about the point of a sword? This man did (from KSAT-12):

SAN ANTONIO -- A man told officers that he attacked an 18-year-old with a sword in an apartment to try to prevent him from using drugs on Saturday night, police said.

Lydell Galtney, 31, told police that he tried to reason with the teen in the 1200 block of Mulberry Street, but when that didn't work, he slashed him in the throat with a 2-foot long, replica sword.

Officers arrested Galtney at an apartment while the victim was rushed to a hospital.

The 18-year-old man seems to be OK, as the cut was not actually serious, but so far has refused to press charges against his attacker. Maybe he got the point.

Funnily enough I've actually met someone who carries a broadsword with him, and when I saw this online I wondered if it might be him. :D

He carries a broadsword with him? I wonder if that is even legal.
