A 26-year-old Overland Park man was charged Thursday with critically injuring another man with a sword Wednesday.
Johnson County prosecutors charged Dustin A. Evans with a felony count of aggravated battery. Evans, who has been in custody since shortly after the incident, remains jailed with bond set at $250,000.
According to police, Evans and the other man, who was not identified, were at a home in the 6400 block of West 151st Place when they were engaged in “horseplay” that got out of hand. The victim underwent surgery later Wednesday and at last report remained in intensive care at a hospital.
