Stabbing at bar injures 2 in Thibodaux
A man from Thibodaux is locked up after allegedly stabbing a woman and a man at a bar.
"At around 12:10 A.M. on Sunday, February 9, deputies and medical personnel responded to a call of a fight with multiple injuries at the Armadillo Club, located at 1988 Burma Road in Thibodaux," Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Spokesman Brennan Matherne said in a news release. "Upon arrival, deputies immediately made contact with James David who was wielding a knife and a pool cue."
Matherne says cops had to use a Taser on the suspect, 38-year-old James David.
"Despite deputies' commands, David refused to drop the knife and pool cue. One of the deputies utilized a Taser, and subdued James into compliance. He was immediately taken into custody."
He says they learned that an argument turned violent inside the bar.
"David had allegedly started an altercation with several individuals and began physically attacking them. One female bystander attempted to break up the fight, and fell to the ground along with David. David then allegedly began striking the woman near her feet, and eventually struck her with a knife, cutting her near the ankle. Another bystander pulled David away from the others and began escorting him to the door. As he did so, David allegedly stabbed the man multiple times before being led outside. Both victims suffered wounds which were not life-threatening and are expected to recover."
Cops arrested David and charged him with aggravated battery.
