An Oklahoma City woman was being held in the Oklahoma County jail Monday after being accused of attacking another woman with nunchucks, police reported.

Lisa Arlene Ward, 47, was arrested Sunday on complaints of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was also arrested on a Cleveland County warrant of failure to appear.

Police were called about 2:50 a.m. Sunday to the 3400 block of NW 66 in reference to two women fighting. When officers arrived, the homeowner, Sally Venard, said she had been attacked by Ward with nunchucks, according to an officer's incident report.

Venard told officers that Ward's girlfriend was staying with her because they had been fighting. Ward drove to Venard's home and approached Venard's front porch while swinging nunchucks above her head, according to the report.

Venard said Ward hit the left side of her head. Venard and her friend tackled Ward to the ground and held her down until officers arrived, according to the incident report.

Officers noted that Ward smelled strongly of alcohol, had slurred speech and was in possession of a pipe with marijuana residue.

Ward told officers she had a black belt in karate, and said “I'm a violent b----,” according to the report.

Ward's bail is set at $6,500, a jail official said.
