OKLAHOMA CITY — The age-old argument over which is better, Star Wars or Star Trek, took a bloody turn in Oklahoma when two nerds got into a knife fight.
Oklahoma City Police say Jerome Dewayne Whyte, 23, was arrested after a bloody brawl on July 1 which was sparked by a tense debate over which sci-fi franchise is superior.
Cops say the victim, who they did not publically identify, told investigators he became frustrated and stated “You’re just a trick” before walking out of the room, KOKH-TV reported.
Whyte then chased the man into the other room and shoved him to the ground, cops said.
The victim got back up and said: “You wanna replay that?” and was once again shoved to the ground, cops said.
Whyte then put his arm around the victim’s neck and began choking him. The victim said he was about to pass out when he pulled out a pocket knife. Whyte then let go and cut himself as he reached for the blade, and then fled the room.
Whyte was later charged with assault and battery, possession of marijuana and on several older warrants, police said.
