Black Friday Body Count: Sometimes The One Who Brings A Knife To A Gunfight Wins

Remember, it’s not just merchandise and a good spot in line that are worth fighting over on this most joyous of trumped up holidays. After all, if you can’t park, you can’t do either of those things.

Sheriff Brian Hieatt tells WVVA it happened in the Walmart parking lot. He says two men, 61-year-old Ronnie Sharp of Russell County and 35-year-old Christopher Jackson of Jewell Ridge in Tazewell County, were arguing over a parking space.
This escalated into a threat with a firearm, and then Hieatt says Sharp used a knife to cut Jackson in the arm, slicing down to the bone.

Hahaha, the stabby guy’s name is Sharp. It’s even Sharp without the E on the end like a lot of Sharpes tend to have.

Sharp, who clearly isn’t, has been charged with malicious wounding and brandishing a firearm. He was jailed but later released on $5000 bond.

Jackson was treated for his injuries at a local hospital and also charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery. He too is free on a $5000 bond.
