— Wichita police have arrested a 37-year-old man after a fight involving a sword and steak knives at a local hotel.

Police say the man entered the motel room where a 57-year-old man was staying and threatened him with a sword Monday night. The older man ran to his room's kitchen and grabbed two steak knives to confront the attacker.

Police spokesman Lt. Doug Nolte says the fight spilled into the hotel's parking lot. When police arrived the older man had the 37-year-old pinned against a wall outside the hotel.

The Wichita Eagle reports officers found methamphetamine and marijuana on the 37-year-old.

"When police arrived the older man had the 37-year-old pinned against a wall outside the hotel."

Old age and treachery will defeat youth and enthusiasm every time. :)

I find it very hard to believe that drugs were involved in this incident.

I find it very hard to believe this happened in Wichita.

Sounds like Frodo wants the ring back from Gollum.

"Police say the man threatened kicked in the motel room where a 57-year-old man was staying and threatened him with a sword Monday night. "

Huh? Is "the man" named 'Threatened'? I don't think the threatened man kicked in the motel room, and how do you "kick in a motel room"?

Maybe it should read like this: "Police say the 37 year old man kicked in the door to a motel room Monday night, where a 57-year-old man was staying. The 37 year old man then threatened him with a sword."

That's much closer to making sense anyway.... I still want to know how one kicks in a Motel room.

I would guess with a foot.

Meth is a hell of a drug.

You guess wrong! :-) You could use your foot to kick in a door, a window, heck even the wall to the room. You can't 'kick in a room' anymore than you can kick an idea, because that is what a room is; a human created abstract term to describe the space contained within walls, floors, ceilings, windows and door(s). He could have kicked in the door to a room, or forcibly kicked his way into a room, although I think the latter would look more like a Monty Python skit. /rant

Did somebody drop a women's glove to signify the start? A return to civility.

Wouldn't it be great if our gangbangers settled differences with formal sword fights?

Better yet, dueling by pistols. In a perfect world they would use 19 shot semi-auto Glock dueling pistols. On my count take 2 steps turn and fire.

A sword is the second most dangerous short range weapon. The only thing more dangerous is a pistol.

So how does it happen that you take a sword after someone who has 2 steak knives.....and lose? Oh, that's right. Meth.

Heck, this guy killed an intruder with a samurai sword. http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2009-09-16/news/0909150076_1_samurai-sword-samurai-weapon-pontolillo
