What The *%$# is Wrong With People

Last night sitting at Harrah's I heard the most disturbing story. Two men fought over a poker seat at the Taj Mahal. They decided to go outside to settle who is going to get the seat. One guy beat up the other. Then, the one that got messed up decided it was in his best interest to stab the other and kill him.

Awesome. Because I am sure it was worth a poker seat.

Although, the way I heard the story was that the man got his throat slit at the poker table.

Here is the write up that was in The Press of Atlantic City. There are some disturbing photos on The Press' website of the man who got stabbed. He was walking fine it seemed before he got into the ambulance. Although, now he is dead.:

An argument at a poker table Saturday at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort escalated into a stabbing in the parking garage, leaving one man dead and another in custody, according to the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.
The incident took place at 2:46 p.m. Saturday, spokeswoman Madelaine Vitale said.

Vicente Perez, 57, of Georgia, began arguing with another man at a Taj poker table, Vitale said. They stepped out of the casino and into the valet parking area of the garage near the Virginia Avenue entrance, where the argument descended into violence.

The victim, whose identity was not released pending the notification of his family, was pronounced dead at 4:05 p.m. at AtlantiCare Medical Center in Atlantic City, Vitale said.

Perez was taken into the custody of the Prosecutor's Office Major Crimes Unit, Vitale said, and was expected to be charged with aggravated manslaughter and two weapons charges, as the knife was recovered at the scene.
