Man arrested for sword and sandwich attack

Winter Haven, Florida -- A Polk County man faces numerous charges after a bizarre confrontation outside of his mobile home.

According to his arrest affidavit, 50-year-old Mark Christopher Miller confronted several women after hearing a disturbance outside of his residence on Friday night.

Wielding a sword, Miller allegedly began poking it at Brandi Bodiford's stomach. Bodiford, who is six months pregnant, was able to grab the blade to keep Miller from stabbing her.

Another woman, Taylor Grimes, stepped in between the two when Miller threatened to kill her with the sword. The arrest report goes on to say Miller then smeared his peanut butter sandwich on the chest of a third woman, Cierra Harwell.

Responding deputies took Miller into custody. While in the back of the patrol car, the suspect apparently chewed on the padding on the car's cage divider, causing about $550 in damage.

Miller told investigators he was upset because the "damn lesbians" were banging on his trailer. He also said he did have a sword in his hand, but he never left the doorway of his home.

Miller was arrested and charged with battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and criminal mischief.
