I'm not sure of the source of the article. I may even grabbed it from this forum.

Man Stabbed with Swordfish in Fight

MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. (Reuters) -
A Florida fisherman was recovering on Friday after being stabbed with the
bill of a swordfish during a fight with another man, a sheriff's spokeswoman
said. Police arrested Frank Ashmus, 46, and Garth Spacek, 42, on Thursday
after the two fishermen allegedly started fighting near a dock in Madeira
Beach, a small city on Florida's Gulf Coast. Police said that after Spacek
hit Ashmus in the head with a beer bottle and left, Ashmus went to Spacek's
apartment and stabbed him in the abdomen with a sharp detached bill of a
swordfish. "We don't see this kind of thing very often," said Pinellas
County Sheriff spokeswoman Marianna Pasha. Both men were drunk, according to
police. Ashmus and Spacek were held without bond on charges of aggravated
battery. Spacek was in fair condition, Pasha said.

Really bizarre.

As an oddly related sidenote, I recently "Googled" for images of the espadon (the Spanish word for "great sword"--ie., the large European two-handed swords), and a bunch of swordfish pics came up!

I don't know much about swordfish, but this one looks pretty big:



Getting stuck with that thing would be like getting stuck with a rapier or estoc.  Mr. Spacek is lucky that he didn't take a thrust to the lungs or another vital organ...
