Curtis Miller, 54, was taken into custody and was charged Monday with attempted murder in the second degree
A man from Florida was arrested after allegedly attacking a man with a samurai sword during a fight for a second-hand wheelbarrow.
Curtis Miller, 54, was detained and charged with a second-degree attempted murder on Monday, two months after the shocking incident.
Police claim Miller was looking through a pile of rubbish outside an empty house in Oakland Park on July 15, when a jogger named Todd Beavers also stopped searching the discarded items.
Beavers found a black plastic wheelbarrow that he decided would be useful and decided to take it home.
Miller, however, believed that he had first haggled over the items and exchanged words with Beavers – who decided to leave with the wheelbarrow.
The beavers were jogging home when he saw the man – who according to the police was now Miller – running after him with a samurai sword in his hand. It is unclear whether the weapon also came from the garbage dump.
Bevers told WSVN after the incident: & # 39; I turned behind me and the (the attacker) had a sword out, chasing me, so I kept running & # 39 ;.
The man pulled the front lawn of his house, where his surveillance camera followed a violent fight that followed.

The shocking images show that the man's authorities think Miller Beavers is trying to hit the samurai sword as they struggle for the wheelbarrow.
Eventually the attacker runs away without the cart before the police are summoned.
Despite almost losing his life on the second-hand item, Beavers no longer owns the black wheelbarrow.
Security video made a woman who later took the cart from Beavers' house and claimed that she was the original owner.
Bevers told Fox news what he now regrets ever stopping jogging to look through the pile of trash.
& # 39; I really regret it … Where did I end up for a stupid cart? I don't even need it. I just felt very stupid about it, & he said.
