ARTESIA, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico man is facing charges after Artesia police say he beat a sleeping man with nunchucks.
The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports (http://bit.ly/13jKzaQ) that the bizarre beating occurred Saturday when police say Steven Banda used the martial arts weapons on a man resting on Artesia home couch.
According to police, Banda told officers he attacked the man because “there was disrespect.”
Police say the man, who was not named, suffered injuries to his head, left eye and right arm.
Nunchucks are two sticks connected by a short chain or rope traditionally used in martial arts.
Banda was arrested on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
It was unclear if he had an attorney.
