    A graduate of the University of Miami law school was arrested this week in Cocoa Beach after allegedly threatening to kill his girlfriend in a naked sword duel.

    "You're going to need this," a nude Terry Lee Locy, 36, said to his live-in girlfriend as he handed her a sword, according to an arrest report from the Brevard County Sheriff's Office.

    The couple had been arguing about Locy's alleged excessive drinking early Wednesday morning, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by Florida Today, when Locy took a mirror off a wall and raised it as if to strike his girlfriend.

    The woman took the mirror hook from the wall and flung it at Locy, accord to the police report, causing a cut to his head.

    Locy then took a shower and emerged naked to challenge his girlfriend to a duel, police say.

    After handing her the sword, he pulled a larger one from its sheath and told her, “I’m going to kill you,” according to the affidavit.

    He is then alleged to have slammed the woman into a sofa before punching her. The woman called 911 and told investigators that Locy had run from the home naked and still clutching his sword, according to Florida Today.

    He was later arrested at Cape Canaveral Hospital and ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.

    Locy, who graduated from UM Law in 2004, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a third degree felony, and domestic violence battery.

    Florida bar records indicate Locy manages his own small firm in Rockledge. He was not immediately available for comment.
