Man gets stabbed, then arrested on assault with deadly weapon
March 7, 2003
Justin Nixon, 18, was arrested on assault with a deadly weapon after getting stabbed in the stomach when he allegedly used his boots to kick a 16-year-old in the head, a South Lake Tahoe police officer said.
The incident, which occurred Feb. 25 at a residence on Bonanza Avenue, started with an argument and ended with Nixon and another 18-year-old being stabbed in the midsection, police said.
Nixon and the other man allegedly beat a 16-year-old who defended himself by using a knife. The three were taken to Barton Memorial Hospital and released after receiving care.
Nixon was a star player for South Tahoe High School before quitting the team in 2000, his senior year. He received first-team all-region defensive end honors in 2000.
Nixon was housed briefly at El Dorado County Jail and made $30,000 bail Friday.
