[Photo: Downtown Express]Last week, a 35-year-old Kips Bay resident was spotted carrying a 16-inch curved sword around Chinatown. Morgan Soto reportedly entered a Chinese buffet at Howard and Centre Streets armed for battle. The erratic actions caught the attention of a nearby traffic cop who gave chase and called for backup. An ambulance carted him away for a psychological exam (Nurse Ratched?).
Soto is charged with criminal possession of a weapon, disorderly conduct, and false impersonation for providing police with a phony last name. He has thirty priors, mostly for drug-related issues.
