NC Teen Accused Of Stabbing Student Over Doughnut

Authorities in Fayetteville have accused a teenager of stabbing a high school classmate during a fight over a doughnut.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said 17-year-old Robert Wallace is charged with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon after 16-year-old Teonia Brinson was stabbed in the stomach Wednesday morning at Westover High School in Fayetteville.

Officials say the two exchanged words after Wallace refused to sell Brinson a doughnut.

Brinson was taken by ambulance to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. She was treated and released for wounds that were not life threatening.

Wallace was released from custody on a $2,000 bond.

    Oh and I did not see it before but they released the kid. Great system. This kid obviously has no self control and will attempt to maim or kill over the slightness altercation. Glad they put him back on the street. Makes everyone feel safer I am sure.

    Won't be long before the government starts regulating doughnuts for everyone because of idiots we allow to exist within our communities. Seriously, I bet two more stabbings over doughnuts will be enough for some Senator to make it their pet project to stop doughnut production state wide while a special tax payer funded investigation discusses why minorities stab each other over doughnuts. Then the NAACP will claim they are unfairly targeted by the effects of doughnuts made by white people and mor black should have jobs in the doughnut shops state wide.
