Didn't wash your hands? Die!

"FORT WORTH — A man at a bar, apparently angered when another customer didn’t wash his hands after using the bathroom, hid in the parking lot and stabbed one of the men’s friends during a brawl early Thursday, according to police.

Morgan Jackson, 25, who was stabbed three times in his left torso and once in his back, underwent surgery at John Peter Smith Hospital. He was listed in good condition Thursday evening.

When police arrived at the Tumbleweeds Sports Bar, 1008 Northeast Loop 820, shortly after 2 a.m., several men were holding Eric Jennings Kisiah, on the ground.

Kisiah, 27, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was being held in the Mansfield Jail on Thursday evening with bail set at $20,000.

According to a police report, Jackson and two friends were at Tumbleweeds when Kisiah confronted one of Jackson’s friends, upset that the man had not washed his hands after using the restroom.

One of the friends told police that Kisiah called the men names and told them that they were dirty. Before leaving the bar, he threatened to “slash their throats,” the friend told police.

Kisiah hid near a shrub and charged the three friends when they left the bar,, the report states.

All the men fell to the ground during the fight. The friends then realized that Jackson, whose shirt was soaked in blood, had been stabbed, the report states.

By a nearby fence, police found an 8-inch Winchester knife that had what appeared to be dried blood on one side.

Kisiah refused to tell police his name at the scene, saying only that he wanted an attorney. He later gave his name after being taken to the police station and fingerprinted, the report states."
