From the Los Angeles Times: “Friends’ hike ends with sword-wielding brawl

What started as a Sunday hike in the San Gabriel Mountains among friends turned into a violent brawl involving a sword and pepper spray.

Police said 26-year-old Wesley Brockway, of Ontario, hiked to a friend’s cabin near Mt. Baldy at about 3:30 p.m. with another friend. Soon after arriving, a fight ensued among the three men.

“One of the hikers had a sword and apparently the three of them fought for control of the sword,” said Lt. Roxanna Hart of the L.A. County sheriff’s station in San Dimas.

Moral: Never go hiking with Disneyland workers who’ve been pilfering Pirates of the Caribbean props.
