Medieval aficionado could face felony for alleged swordfight with daughter

A Thurston County medieval aficionado is facing a potential felony charge after allegedly forcing his teenage daughter to fight him with a wooden sword.

Fremon Seay, 38, and his wife, Julie Seay, 42, were arrested by Thurston County sheriff’s deputies at their Yelm-area home on Sunday, according to a probable-cause statement released by Thurston County prosecutors. The couple, who were booked for investigation of second-degree assault involving domestic violence and a weapon, were released from jail Monday after posting bail, authorities said.

The victim sent a text message with photos of her bruises and deputies were contacted, the probable-cause paperwork said. When deputies responded to the home for a welfare check on Sunday, they found the girl in the front yard “kneeling and crying.”
