Son Stabs Father Over Wager on Browns-Giants Game

As if the 41-27 drubbing wasn’t enough, a 22-year-old Heath, Ohio man stabbed his father outside of a Buffalo Wild Wings after the two became engaged in a disagreement over the contest between the Cleveland Browns and New York Giants.

According to the Newark Advocate, Logan H. Knight was charged with aggravated assault, a fourth-degree felony, after he opted to take a pocket knife to his father’s leg while arguing in the parking lot. The two men left their friends and family inside the establishment where they would proceed to turn their verbal altercation into one of the physical variety.

During the dispute, the father shut his son’s hand in a truck door. Logan Knight reportedly punched his father in the face then his father punched his son repeatedly, according to a statement of facts filed in Licking County Municipal Court. It was after the elder Knight was removed from the son that the 22-year-old branded, and used, the pocketknife.

No word on if alcohol was involved, nor if the disagreement stemmed from Pat Shurmur’s decision to pass the ball on a third-and-1 play from the Giants’ 25-yard line.

    When my wife and I decided to have kids, we talk about our dreams for them, but at the end of the day, I told my wife, I just hope our kids don’t turn out to be A-holes. It didn’t occur to me at the time, that as the father, I might be responsible for that happening as this case clearly demonstrates…
