2 arrested after fighting with swords

Buda police say two people arrested on Jan. 9 and charged with aggravated assault had been engaged in a sword fight.

Brittany Tate, executive assistance to Buda Police Chief Bo Kidd said someone reported a disturbance  at the Carrington Oaks Apartments.

She said officers arrived and met with 25-year-old Kelsey White and 28-year-old Joshua Rothman, “who admitted to being in an altercation in which each swung a sword with the intent to strike the other.”

Both were charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, which is a second degree felony. 

Both were still behind bars Friday afternoon, with White’s bond set at $25,000 and Rothman’s at $20,000.

Tate said both had minor injuries, but neither required medical attention.
