Man Accused of Attacking Girlfriend with Medieval Sword, High On 8 Hits Of Acid

A 20-year-old man from Baton Rouge allegedly attacked his girlfriend with a medieval sword while high on 8 hits of acid before resisting arrest.

Troy Seals was booked Saturday on aggravated second-degree battery of a domestic partner in addition to the battery of a police officer, according to The Advocate.

It seemingly began with a “Netflix and chill” gone, well, really bad. Seals’s girlfriend told police that they were watching Netflix while smoking weed on Saturday afternoon. At some point, Seals allegedly decided to escalate the activities by consuming 8 hits of acid, an affidavit says. Not long after ingesting LSD, the woman claimed Seals began “being anti-Semitic and making white supremacy remarks.”

Soon, it got physical. Seals allegedly began punching his girlfriend in the face. According to the affidavit, Seals then allegedly attacked her with a medieval sword. The girlfriend suffered contusions on her limbs and a fractured forearm.

Man Accused Of Killing A Couple That Helped Him In Another Alleged Murder

A man already charged in the murder of a couple found buried in a shallow grave in September has just been indicted for the murder of another body found buried under a vacant home in Fort Worth, Texas.

On Thursday, a grand jury indicted Hector “Cholo” Acosta, 28, and his alleged accomplice Felipe Eduardo Ortiz, 29, on capital murder charges in connection with the body found under the home, the Star-Telegram reports.

Texas Teacher Married To High School Football Coach Accused Of Having Improper Relationship With Student

A high school teacher from Burleson County Texas, who is married to the school’s football coach, is accused of having an improper relationship with a 15-year-old student. KBTX reports that early this month the school contacted the Sheriff’s office after the allegations came to light.
