Imagine your significant other is a 29-year-old that plays video games 12 to 13 hours per day. Then imagine that you found the dating app “Tinder” on that significant others phone and you find hair belonging to someone else in your shower? How would you react?
Well, if you said purchase a samurai sword and go all Kill Bill on them you would have a lot in common with Emily Javier. Emily’s boyfriend, Alex Lovell, is a video game enthusiast. He played for 12 to 13 hours per day. PER. DAY. As a 29-year-old “man”. Emily was clearly not happy in her relationship. She claims she found Tinder on Alex’s phone and that she found the hair of another woman in the couples shower. To Alex’s credit he was quoted as saying “I barely had time to hang out with my girlfriend let alone another girl.” It’s safe to say that neither of these two had a real serious grasp on how relationships work…but what could possibly posses someone to brandish a samurai sword as retaliation.
As The Oregonian reports, this story is just cuckoo bird!
In her interview with police, Javier said she had suspected he had cheated on her before, an accusation she said he always denied. She also mentioned she had grown increasingly incensed by the limited attention he paid her.
Javier told police she grew enraged, went to a shopping mall and purchased a samurai sword.
She spent the next week stewing and plotting her violent revenge, she said.
Her anger peaked the night of March 2 when Lovell returned home and ignored her, Javier said. About 9 p.m., she went into the couple’s bedroom, where she had taped the samurai sword and two knives to her side of the bed, the police report shows.
Lovell later joined her and drifted off to sleep. Javier told police she hid her boyfriend’s phone so he couldn’t call for help.
After the lights went out, Javier said she retrieved he samurai sword – then brought it down on her boyfriend, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Lovell said he woke up to being attacked by Javier. His instincts kicked in, and he drew on a lifetime of Kung Fu films and martial arts training.
“I was able to wing chun my way to survival,” Lovell said referring to a traditional form of Chinese martial art that focuses on close-range combat.
Eventually he got her into a bear hug.
“I saw the look in her eyes, and it scared the living poop out of me,” he said. “I told her I loved her, and she was killing me. She needed to call police, or I was going to die.”
Lovell said he anticipates a long road to recovery. It could be six months until he’s walking again, and he will require extensive physical therapy to regain the full use of his hands.
Until then, Lovell is savoring the small victories.
“The feeling I had when I won the fight with my bare hands is just absolutely the best feeling,” he said. “I’ve played all the sports, won big games, landed some decent tricks on my snowboard. This was better.”
Seriously, this guy has got to be named king of the nerds. right? In one article he says he had to “wing chun”, he refers to himself as E-thelete and HE SURVIVED A SAMARAI ATTACK!
