Huron fight results in arrests, but no sword

One of two men arrested for a Sunday-morning fight in Huron may have brandished a sword during the scuffle, but police were unable to locate the weapon.

Sandusky residents Kaire Burchett, 23, of the 3000 block of Plumbrook Circle, and Joshua Fennell, 23, of the 1600 block of Camp St., were both charged with disorderly conduct.

A woman called police at about 2 a.m. and said the two men were fighting in a parking lot in the 300 block of Main St. One of the men, the woman said, pulled out what appeared to be a sword during the fight, according to a Huron police report.

Huron police arrived at the scene and found a number of people huddled in small groups, arguing. An officer then saw Burchett and Fennell standing "nose to nose" as they argued, the report said.

Burchett pushed Fennell and then tried hit to another man, but Burchett's fist missed its target and caused him to fall face-first on the ground. An officer then arrested Burchett, who smelled like alcohol, the report said.

Another officer tried to arrest Fennell, who resisted, but a third officer jumped in and was able to help handcuff Fennell and place him in a police cruiser. Both Burchett and Fennell denied using a sword during the incident.

A third male, Bryan Norton, 23, of the 2300 block of Huron-Avery Road in Huron, was also charged with disorderly conduct. Norton reportedly punched Fennell in the face as the two were leaving I5's Bar near the Huron Boat Basin, the report said.
