You know roommate beef is serious when the swords come out. A serious argument between Mervin Hamilton and his roommate ended when Lower Paxton Township police showed up to the Pennsylvania home and found the other man bleeding from his head and hands. It's unknown why the two were arguing, but Hamilton has been accused of slashing his roommate with a sword.

He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment, while his roommate was taken to the hospital, treated for his injuries and released. The first of the new month is right around the corner, and with Hamilton still in custody, who's going to pay his half of the rent?
