Settling it the Old Fashioned Way

Dale G. Robertson, 25, was driving through Sunnyside, Wash., when he spotted a familiar pickup backing out of a driveway. According to police spokeswoman Charlotte Hinderlider, the two drivers had been having a long-running dispute. Police said Robertson decided to settle the dispute by ramming the unnamed 27-year-old victim’s truck. Robertson then allegedly got out with a weapon — a sword, of all things — and started swinging at the man. Thinking fast, the victim grabbed a machete that just happened to be lying in his yard and defended himself. The victim’s mother, who was still in the car, called 911, and Robertson fled in his vehicle shortly after. Police caught him and held him on assault charges. (MS/Yakima Herald, Bellingham Herald) ...The victim’s mother only heard the assailant say one thing: “Hello! My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
