Teen Arrested For Stabbing At Erie Lanes Bowling Alley

The “Teen Night” event at the bowling alley, where Mayor Michael Nutter bowled with teenagers in an effort to stop the violence, had just ended when several hundred teenagers were released in groups before heading home.

Not exactly what the Mayor was hoping for would be my guess.

During Maxey’s arrest, police recovered a small retractable knife blade from his home. Maxey is charged with Assault, Simple Assault and Terroristic threats.

Terroristic threats? Really? Assault and Simple Assault? Really? How about, Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon? How about Attempted Murder?

I guess he’s just a misunderstood “yout” and will straighten out fine with a little counseling.

After a long career as a field EMS provider, I'm now doing all that back office stuff I used to laugh at. Life is full of ironies, isn't it? I still live in the Northeast corner of the United States, although I hope to change that to another part of the country more in tune with my values and beliefs. I still write about EMS, but I'm adding more and more non EMS subject matter. Thanks for visiting.
