Zbigniew Supinski charged with battery, aggravated assault on wife

PALM COAST, Fla. – A Palm Coast man has been arrested after deputies say he was beating up his wife, but was stopped by his 21-year-old stepson, wielding a samurai sword.

Deputies said Zbigniew Supinski was choking his wife and shot at her when his stepson heard his mother crying for help on Sunday.

Kamil Mezalka then grabbed a two-foot-long samurai sword and told his stepfather to get off of his mother, according to deputies.

Supinski was arrested and charged with felony battery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
