Florida Man Attacks Mom’s Boyfriend For Stealing Shrimp
Via Orlando Sentinel reports:
A Samurai sword-wielding, knife-throwing Volusia County man attacked his mother’s boyfriend over a missing can of shrimp Saturday morning, an arrest report said.
Jayson Laughman, 34, of Deltona used a sword to break down a door and threw kitchen knives at family members after his mother’s boyfriend accused him of taking a can of shrimp, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
Laughman told deputies he didn’t remember everything that happened during the fight because he “went into code red and lost his temper,” the report said.
Michael Airhart, 52, and Laughman had a “heated verbal argument” before agreeing to go outside and “engage in a physical fight” at the home they share located in the 700 block of North Firewood Drive at 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
Laughman threatened Airhart with a statue, but the fight outside did not escalate past that, according to the report.
Thinking the fight was over, Airhart returned to his bedroom with Laughman’s mother.
The couple was watching television when Laughman started breaking through the bedroom door with a Samurai style metal sword, the report said.
Once inside the bedroom, Laughman made threats that he would use the sword to hurt Airhart, deputies say.
The couple was able to calm Laughman down and he left the room, but returned almost immediately and started throwing two kitchen knives at Airhart, deputies said.
Airhart was able to escape the bedroom through a sliding-glass door without being injured.
During the investigation, Laughman complained of chest pains. He was transported to Florida Fish Memorial Hospital, where deputies questioned him.
Although deputies arrested Laughman and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, he remains in the hospital.
