A Texas man is under arrest after police say he attacked his son with a samurai sword over a video game, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.


Antonio Juan Alvarado, 57, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His son said that Alvarado swung a 3-foot Katana sword at him, cutting the back of his head.

The son said his father was angry that he didn't have a job and was "playing video games all day long."

The son went to the hospital and was treated, and police then tried to arrest his dad, who fled before being detained later, police said.
