Women spar with sword and machete
By J. Eric Eckard
A spat between two children turned into a neighborhood duel, police said.
Rocky Mount police accused two women of attacking each other Wednesday morning at a school bus stop one armed with a sword and the other with a machete.
"They were swinging the sword and the machete at each other," said Rocky Mount police Sgt. Gerald Pipkin.
Both women Latecia Damita Anderson and Yolanda Nicole Braswell were charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Anderson, 29, of the 700 block of Ravenwood Drive and Braswell, 19, of the 600 block of Ravenwood Drive were released from custody under $1,000 bonds apiece.
The battle stemmed from a previous incident, in which Braswell's younger brother apparently struck Anderson's child in the eye with a rubber band on Tuesday either at their school or on the bus, Pipkin said. Shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday in front of Braswell's house, Anderson was on her child's bus when Braswell approached the bus armed with a machete, police charge.
"Anderson got off the bus, and a nearby person gave her a sword," said Pipkin, adding that it wasn't clear who gave Anderson the sword.
The two alleged combatants squared off, swinging their weapons at each other until officers arrived at the scene, police charge. Neither woman was hurt.
A third suspect also was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Marvin Rushard Braswell, 18, who lives at the same address as Yolanda Braswell, was accused of "hollering, shouting and encouraging the fight," police charge. He was released under a $500 bond. It's not known how the two were related.
That's some redneck action for ya!
You need a Neighborhood Association dood...

No, I won't say it.
Hmm. I guess Zorro just happened to be walking by.
Redneck, no...I don't think so...
My mom can beat up your mom!
All they lacked was Snoop Dogg, two wet t-shirts and a video camera.
OK--explain the use of this object! My first thought is that it's for pruning shrubs...
Somebody needed to vote for Kerry in NC. And Edwards too, I guess.
...Latecia Damita Anderson and Yolanda Nicole Braswell were charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

I was curiously compelled to ping you to this thread.
