It’ll Come to Me

Two drunk men got into a knife fight in Monroe County, Penn. Karl William Brown, 36, allegedly stabbed his friend after the two had been drinking heavily at another friend’s house. Brown left the house after the incident, but later he remembered enough to call police and confess to the assault. The victim, James Barbagallo, was treated at the hospital and released with non life-threatening injuries. Brown was charged with felony aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, and simple assault, and was held on $50,000 bail. What was the fight about? Both men say they can’t remember. (JW/Lehigh Valley Express-Times) ...The reason for the stabbing is obvious: Brown was just testing to see if Barbagallo was “done.”
