If I'm not mistaken, I heard on News Channel 5 there was a stabbing involved in Cookeville at a Restraurant? Is this true and if so where?

According to Channel 5 several people were injured, and one was critical. It happened just after 9pm.
One person was taken to CRMC and another was transported by helicopter to Erlanger Medical Center.

My boyfriend drove by and saw emts loading a patient on the ambulance. We thought we saw Poe helping but could have been mistaken. It was a heavier man on the stretcher so it very well could have been him.

Jerry Arnold Sams (Courtesy: Putnam County Sheriff's Dept.)
COOKEVILLE, TN (WSMV)-
A man was charged with attempted second-degree murder after an assault with a knife Wednesday night in Putnam County.

At about 9 p.m., police were dispatched to the Dinner Bell Tavern on South Jefferson Avenue to investigate a disturbance and possible assault.

Officers said that Jerry Arnold Sams, 74, had cut Harold William Dunn Jr., 39, both from Cookeville, after an altercation inside the tavern with a pocket knife.

Dunn was taken to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga, TN, by helicopter with severe injuries to his throat area.

Sams was taken to Cookeville Regional Medical Center. Both men were believed to be intoxicated, said police.

Sams was released from the hospital early Thursday morning and faces charges of attempted second-degree murder.

Dunn is in extremely critical condition, said police.

Beat half to death? Please. Harold, not saprino, was slashed in the throat 3 times. While holding a towel to his gushing neck he had to defend himself as the previously convicted murderer would not stop stabbing him

Harold was stabbed seven times and almost passed away. He is stable now and was discharged yesterday. The other man was only beaten out of self-defense. He took Harold by surprise and what do you expect?
