ATHENS, Ala. (AP) — A football fan is facing an attempted murder charge after allegedly stabbing a Limestone County man during an argument over a video game.
Sheriff Mike Blakely said James Rodney Wilson, 34, of Tanner and Lance Eugene Borchert, 34, were playing PlayStation football at Borchert's home Saturday.
"Borchert quit playing around 1:30 a.m. and got into bed with his wife and Wilson came in and stabbed him in the back with a butcher knife," Blakely said.
Blakely said the stabbing apparently occurred because Tennessee beating Auburn, not in a real game, but on a video game.
"I can only assume Wilson was on the losing end," he said.
The knife, about 10 to 12 inches long, punctured Borchert's lung.
A MedFlight helicopter took Borchert to Huntsville Hospital, where he was in serious condition.
After the stabbing, Blakely said Wilson ran from the Borchert home into nearby woods.
He said dogs from Limestone Correctional Facility helped track Wilson, and authorities arrested him at 3:15 a.m.
