BIG PINE KEY, Fla. -

A Marathon man is accused of attacking his brother-in-law with a sword.

Diosvany Orama, 27, was arrested Friday on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said deputies were called to the Seahorse Campground on Big Pine Key, where the victim told them his brother-in-law attacked him with a sword.

According to the victim and witnesses, Orama was at the campground to speak to the manager about the ownership of a trailer.

As Orama was leaving, he drove by the victim and words were exchanged, Herrin said.

Orama got out of his vehicle and began fighting with the man, Herrin said.

At some point during the fight, Orama removed a sword from the trunk of his car and began swinging it at the victim, striking him several times, Herrin said.

Orama then left the scene and returned home to Marathon.

When deputies met with Orama, he told them he threw the sword away, Herrin said. The sword was found at the scene.
