KATY, Texas (KRON) — Who doubts the power of the master sword of Zelda? Certainly not a Texas man who is hospitalized in serious condition after he was stabbed by a replica sword fashioned after the video game.
Eugene Thompson tells police he got into an argument with his girlfriend who then called her ex-husband for help. Thompson says he pulled out his replica master sword from the “Legend of Zelda” video game to defend himself.
“And I pulled it out and I stood in the doorway and he was just coming down that hall at me while I was yelling ‘Go away you don’t live here,’” Thompson said. “And he just walked right into the point. I don’t know if he thought it was a toy.”
The ex-husband suffered stab wounds to the chest and leg but not before he allegedly hit Thompson over the head with a flower pot.
The ex was taken to the hospital in serious condition. Thompson was treated for a head gash.
Authorities haven’t yet said if charges will be filed in the incident.
