Proving once again that some pit bull owners may be of greater concern to the community then the much maligned dog breed, an article in today's Oakland Tribune describes a fight over one of the dogs that resulted in multiple stabbings. Around 11 a.m. on Sunday, an unnamed father and two sons fought over a pit bull with a fourth man named Lamont Smith. Smith stabbed one of the sons, 22, in the stomach, and the father and 16-year-old son received cuts to their hands when they joined the fray.
Police said the fourth person, Lamont Smith, a 30-year-old self-described transient, stabbed the 22-year-old and later was cut himself. He fled the scene, police said, but was arrested about 2:30 p.m. at San Leandro Hospital, where he had gone to be treated for a knife wound.
When the police show up at the hospital where you are being treated for stab wounds, do yourself a favor, pick a slightly less shady word than “transient.”-Andy Wright
