Friends' fight ends in stabbing, Orange County authorities say

Posted January 1, 2010

— The Orange County Sheriff's Office was investigating a stabbing in Hillsborough early Friday, which involved two longtime friends who tend to fight when they drink alcohol, authorities said. 

The stabbing happened around 4:30 a.m. at a mobile home on Lot 12 on Alice Street, authorities said.

The stabbing victim, who sustained injuries to his shoulder, was being treated at UNC Hospitals. His name and condition were not released, but the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, the sheriff's office said.

Authorities are searching for the other man involved in the fight. His name was not released. However, he may have cuts and bruises on his face, authorities said.

Authorities said they are not sure which man was the primary aggressor. No other details were released.

    Let's see two people got drunk and had a fight. One was stabbed. With friends like that you don't need enemies. I cannot believe WRAl even reported this. Someone did something to someone else but we will not tell who. No one really cares.

    These two guys need to switch to soft drinks before they seriously kill each other.

    What are friends for? If you can't stab your friends, who can you stab?

    Don't you hate when that happens? You're hanging out with your best friend and one thing leads to another and you end up stabbing him.
