A 20-year-old man from Baton Rouge allegedly attacked his girlfriend with a medieval sword while high on 8 hits of acid before resisting arrest.
Troy Seals was booked Saturday on aggravated second-degree battery of a domestic partner in addition to the battery of a police officer, according to The Advocate.
It seemingly began with a “Netflix and chill” gone, well, really bad. Seals’s girlfriend told police that they were watching Netflix while smoking weed on Saturday afternoon. At some point, Seals allegedly decided to escalate the activities by consuming 8 hits of acid, an affidavit says. Not long after ingesting LSD, the woman claimed Seals began "being anti-Semitic and making white supremacy remarks."
Soon, it got physical. Seals allegedly began punching his girlfriend in the face. According to the affidavit, Seals then allegedly attacked her with a medieval sword. The girlfriend suffered contusions on her limbs and a fractured forearm. According to WBRZ, there was blood on the sword and around the home.
As police tried to arrest Seals, he allegedly injured an officer’s finger. Seals "actively fought arrest," deputies stated. At the time of his arrest, Seals allegedly yelled that he is God. In addition, police say he yelled, “Bright lights!"
When asked why he attacked his girlfriend, Seals allegedly told police, "I was trying to hit her in the head,” according to WBRZ.
It’s unclear if Seals has a lawyer at this point.
