TITUSVILLE, Fla. -- A defense attorney from Titusville was arrested this week after agents said he threatened to kill his girlfriend as he challenged her to a naked sword duel.
Terry Lee Locy, 36, faces counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence battery. The assault charge is a third-degree felony punishable by five years in prison.
According to an arrest affidavit, Locy and his live-in girlfriend were arguing early Wednesday morning about his "drinking in excess." Locy then grabbed a mirror off a door and "raised it up as if he was attempting to strike" her, Agent Pamela Hibbs of the Brevard County Sheriff's Office wrote in the affidavit.
That's when the girlfriend grabbed the hook on which the mirror had been hanging and flung it toward Locy, who suffered a cut to his head, Local 6 partner Florida Today reported.
After showering, a nude Locy handed a sheathed sword to his girlfriend and said, "You're going to need this," the court document states.
Locy then retrieved a larger sword, pulled it from the sheath and told her, "I'm going to kill you," the affidavit said.
Hibbs wrote that after the woman tried to run away, he "slammed" her onto the living room couch, where he punched her several times. She managed to free herself and call 911.
The girlfriend told investigators that Locy left the house with the sword. He was still naked.
He was arrested Thursday at Cape Canaveral Hospital in Cocoa Beach.
He was released from the Brevard County Detention Center on Friday afternoon and was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.
Locy, who has offices in Rockledge, has represented clients in murder trials and in a 2009 case in which a man was convicted of robbing a credit union and hiding the stolen cash in his prosthetic leg.
