Police: Woman Pulls Sword In Spat Over Parking Spot

UPDATED: 1:32 pm MDT May 8, 2006
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- An argument over a parking place outside a Florida Wal-Mart store erupted in a sword attack and landed a 46-year-old woman in jail, according to police.
Sharlott Till is accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly threatening women in another car with a 27-inch sword hidden inside her walking cane.
Police said Till and her husband were waiting to pull into a parking space at a Wal-Mart Sunday afternoon, when another car drove around them. According to the arrest report, Till approached a woman and her daughter in the other car and they exchanged profane words.
Witnesses told police that Till produced the sword and began swinging it around. She later told police she is trained in the use of a sword and was only attempting to scare the other driver.

Till's husband told police he didn't see the sword even though he was standing just feet away from the confrontation.
No one was hurt in the incident.


This lady reminds me of that post Black Petunia did....
Now we know who votes for that guy!!!
So I think the use of swords is really on a come-back. I mean, It's a lot more personal than just pulling a gun - and you really need some skill to use one - as per the above line, "She later told police she is trained in the use of a sword and was only attempting to scare the other driver".

I think she's onto something here! And just think that all those Asian stores selling bamboo and swords in the mall have been right ALL ALONG! Let's wallop those Medieval Dickweeds!!!

p.s. Whoever is buying theBat'Leth , I'm on your side!!!

I think knives are a good idea. Big, fuck-off shiny ones. Ones that look like they could skin a crocodile. Knives are good, because they don't make any noise, and the less noise they make, the more likely we are to use them. Shit 'em right up. Makes it look like we're serious. Guns for show, knives for a pro.

What movie? Jason doesn't get to guess.

While listening to Missy Elliot this morning she said that she doesn't use guns but uses chains instead. Like in the olden days, I'm assuming. Apparently, guns are for wussies. Chains, swords, and knives, Oh my!

Ha, easy one. "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" - which was better than Snatch.

Ya Amb-o, that was too easy. I should've cut the quote down more.

` Man, now I want a sword! I can't see myself getting in a fight over a fricking parking space, but, you know... it's a lot scarier than Mace if I'm in a dark alley. Or perhaps a set of nunchuks slung over my belt. If I wore a belt....

The funniest part is this woman had the sword hidden in her cane. Her cane, for chrissakes! So, yeah, she's trained in swordfighting or whatever but also differently-abled, to the point of needing a cane. I think the issue is where to hide our weapons of medieval destruction. Cassie has often talked about keeping Chinese stars in her tennis skirt. If only she wore tennis skirts...
