Man Stabbed in Head During “Mayweather vs McGregor” House Party, Suspect Faces Several Felony Charges
HOLIDAY – Floyd Maryweather walked away victorious after Saturday’s bout with opponent Conner McGregor, and Pasco County Officials say that’s what led to a violent altercation at a residence on Roxbury Drive that left one man with a stab wound to the head.
According to officials, 31-year-old John Wolfenbarger attended a house party with the victim, 23-year-old Tyler Brinson at 3022 Roxbury Drive. At some point during the party, Wolfenbarger began arguing with Brinson on the front porch of the residence, regarding the boxing match. Eventually, Wolfenbarger and Brinson began shoving each other, and that’s when Wolfenbarger stabbed Brinson in the head with a 3” folding knife. Wolfenbarger fled the scene and then randomly began banging on the hood of a Lincoln Navigator, stopped at the intersection of Alternate US-19 and US-19. When the driver confronted Wolfenbarger about the incident, Wolfenbarger threatened the driver with the knife and then proceeded to stab the victim’s tail light.
Wolfenbarger again fled the area but was soon located by Deputies in the area of Metropolitan Ministries on Eastwood Drive. Officials say Wolfenbarger began challenging the deputies with the knife and demanding that they shoot him. Wolfenbarger eventually threw the knife at one of the deputies and was taken into custody without further incident.
Wolfenbarger is charged with Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Battery, Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Arrest, and Criminal Mischief. Wolfenbarger is currently held on a $31,150 bond.
Brinson was transported to Bayonet Point Hospital, where they determined that his injuries were non-life-threatening.
