    On-trail entertainment: Sword Fight!

    Man held after sword attack on companion on Mount Baldy trail

    (10-01) 11:09 PDT MOUNT BALDY VILLAGE, Calif. (AP) --

    A sword-wielding hiker nearly severed the arm of another man during a confrontation on a mountain trail, authorities said Monday.

    Wesley Brockway, 26, of Ontario was booked for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon a short time after the Sunday afternoon attack, said Detective Sgt. Dave Barker of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

    Brockway remained jailed Monday. There was no Brockway telephone listing in Ontario or surrounding areas.

    Three men set off Sunday to meet a friend along the trail when an argument escalated and one of the hikers started swinging a baseball bat and another pulled out a large sword, investigators said.

    "Evidently, he always goes hiking with a sword," Barker said Monday. "One guy got his arm almost severed."

    The wounded man, whose name was withheld, was hospitalized at San Antonio Community Hospital. His condition Monday wasn't disclosed.

    Detectives were heading back up the mountain Monday to find the sword, the sergeant said.

    The attack occurred in the San Gabriel Mountains 40 miles northeast of Los Angeles along the border of Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties.

    But it looks like such harmless fun!

    It's just a flesh would.

    But what the heck, who goes hiking with a sword? A machete, maybe, but a sword?!

    "Don't bring a knife to a gun fight" but I guess defeating a baseball bat isn't a problem. Seriously, what a bizarre story! Definitely not the type of guys you'd want to meet on a deserted trail.

    Speaking of swords, I frequently see them for sale on the various home shopping networks. Always wonder, "Who and the heck is buying this stuff and why?!?!" A Katana with a 3 foot blade...just what every home needs.

    Here is a classic blooper that was broadcast live (Oops, they may want to re-think that Lifetime Warranty! ):
