BRONSON, Fla. (AP) - A north Florida man reportedly beat his roommate with a pair of nunchucks during a fight.

The Levy County Sheriff's Office reports that 23-year-old James Brian Brunelle got into a fist fight with his roommate Sunday.

After losing the fight, Brunelle reportedly went to a car, grabbed a set of nunchucks and went back to confront his roommate.

Brunelle reportedly struck his roommate several times with the nunchucks. He also hit another man who tried to break the fight up.

The roommate was taken to a Gainesville hospital for treatment of multiple injuries.

Brunelle was treated for minor injuries before he was taken to jail. He was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Nunchucks are two sticks connected by a short rope or a chain.
