A man has been stabbed with a sword during an argument over a television remote control in Florida.

Police responded to an apartment in Titusville Monday after receiving reports of a stabbing incident. Officers found the victim outside the apartment with stab wounds to his leg and arm. 

First aid was administered before the unidentified man was rushed to a local hospital for treatment. His injuries were non-life-threatening, reported WRXK.

Meanwhile, the accused, identified as 54-year-old Christopher Glynn, was inside the apartment when police arrived. They made contact with him through a landline. Glynn told authorities that he had a disability and could not walk out of the apartment, Click Orlando said in a report.

Police then entered the apartment and found the accused sitting on the couch with a sword beside him. They interrogated Glynn and he confessed to stabbing the victim. He told the officers that he would have "gut him [the victim]" if he had a better aim. Officers took Glynn into custody following the confession.

The same evening, police spoke to the victim at the hospital. The victim told police that the two of them had been drinking inside Glynn's apartment prior to the attack. They reportedly got into an argument because the accused was "hogging the TV remote." In a fit of rage, Glynn picked up a sword and stabbed the victim.

Glynn remained in custody as of Tuesday on one charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. How the two men are related remains unknown.

Earlier this month, a 12-year-old boy shot a 13-year-old during an argument over a video game in Tennessee. Police responded to a home in Parkway Village and found the 13-year-old boy suffering from a gunshot wound. The unidentified victim was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Investigation revealed that the gun used in the shooting belonged to a certain Keshun Tuggle, 18, who was also at the residence when the incident took place. Tuggle, who eventually confirmed that the gun belonged to him and confessed to disposing of the weapon after the shooting, was taken into custody and charged with multiple offenses, including providing a handgun to a juvenile.
