Given how off putting and just plain gross the idea of canned shrimp sounds, I kind of understand why Jayson Laughman became a sword wielding, knife throwing maniac when he was accused of swiping some.
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.
Laughman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, but has been in hospital since the incident after complaining of chest pains during the police investigation. To be specific, he’s been in Florida Fish Memorial Hospital, of all places.
