Modern Day Sword Fight Involves Chainsaw and Pipe

It was like a scene from a gladiator movie.

A fight involving two tenants at a Grass Valley apartment on West Main Street escalated into a modern day sword fight that led to the arrest of one male. Grass Valley Police responded to a call just atfer 1:00 PMĀ  Friday of a fight in the area that involved a man with a chainsaw. Officers arrived and detained approximately seven individuals. Sgt Steve Johnson say that the fight began over a pending eviction of one of the tenants. There was a brief altercation that broke up quickly- but then one suspect returned. That subject was 50 year old John Munds.
