Broken Heart Leads to Knife Fight in the Haight

At this point, it's no longer about love
We all know that broken hearts will make people do crazy things -- sometimes crazy enough to make it on the local police blotter.

For example, police recently had to break up a knife fight in the Lower Haight after a woman and her two brawling men crossed paths. According to San Francisco police, the woman and her live-in boyfriend had recently broken up -- and let's just say there were definitely some hard feelings.

Those feelings got even harder when the ex showed up at their old apartment on Oak Street with a friend to move his stuff out, and found her with her new boyfriend.

The woman's new man had already gotten a restraining order against the ex -- and so the bickering began. As the two were arguing, the new boyfriend pulled out a knife, which never leads to a healthy resolution. The ex-boyfriend's buddy wasn't going to let his friend down, and responded by pulling out his own knife.

Unfortunately, police could not confirm whose knife was bigger -- important details in a love war. 

The two men got into a knife fight, which resulted in just a small cut to the nose. And of course, that pain is nothing compared to a broken heart.

As Police Captain Denis O'Leary so eloquently stated: "Isn't love a splendid thing to behold?"

 loser  types and bottom feeder men keep after the old ex girlfriend who has moved on in life and get in trouble like this geek did. smart men like myself get new better looking more sexy new girlfriends and forget about the ex girlfriend. this is how real men do things in life. but as you notice there are very few real men around any more. then you end up with a story like this one. see how it works now?

I remember back in my day when the Haight was a peace and love part of this city.
