This year's "Brown Thursday" and "Black Friday" events have been riddled with chaos and violent altercations. One example is a fight over a parking space in Virginia that ended in a man being stabbed.
On Thursday night, a holiday known in the United States as Thanksgiving, a man was allegedly stabbed with a knife during a fight in the parking lot of a Walmart store. The fight began as an argument over a parking space. As the argument escalated, one man threatened the other with a firearm. Following that threat, 61-year-old Ronnie Sharp grabbed a knife and allegedly stabbed Christopher Jackson, the 35-year-old man who had been threatening him.
According to WVVA, a stabbing occurred around 6:30 p.m. EST outside the Walmart in Claypool Hill, Virginia. The reports are confirmed by the Tazewell county 911 dispatch. WVVA was told by Sheriff Brian Hieatt that Sharp used a knife to cut Jackson in the arm after Jackson threatened Sharp with a firearm. The laceration on Jackson's arm was "sliced down to the bone" according to Sheriff Hieatt.
Sharp was released on a $5,000 bond after being charged with malicious wounding and brandishing a firearm. Police seized a rifle from him after the fight.
Jackson was first sent to an area hospital to be treated for the stab wound. When he left the hospital, police charged Jackson with disorderly conduct and assault and battery, which are both misdemeanors. Jackson was also released on a $5,000 bond.
