HOUSTON — According to deputies with the Harris County Sheriff's Office, Eugene Thompson lives at a home with his girlfriend and said Saturday night they got into an argument. That's when his girlfriend called her estranged husband, who stopped by the house around 10 p.m.

Thompson's girlfriend let the man inside. Thompson said he ran to the back bedroom and told the man to leave the house, but he refused and started charging at him. That's when Thompson says he grabbed his replica master sword from video game 'The Legend of Zelda.'

Deputies said the two men fought over the sword and in the scuffle, the estranged husband was stabbed  once in the chest and once in the leg. Thompson said the man grabbed a flower pot from outside and smashed it over his head.
