Suspect arrested in Tigerland bar stabbing
PRAIRIEVILLE - Members of a U. S. Marshals Task Force arrested the man Thursday suspected of stabbing an LSU Tigers football player during a Tigerland bar fight.
Police said 20-year-old Jamal Joseph Vaughn of Gonzales faces aggravated second-degree battery charges for the Jan. 5 stabbing at Reggie's bar.
Investigators said Vaughn stabbed Tigers tight end Dillon Gordon multiple times during a fistfight. EMS took Gordon to a local hospital with injuries which weren't life-threatening.
Detectives filed a warrant for Vaughn's arrest Wednesday. The warrant said investigators found his wallet at the scene, which led them to develop him as a suspect.
