A man was stabbed during an incident outside JJ's Sideout Bar and Grill early Sunday morning. LaPorte Police report officers were called to the scene at 3:18am, and upon arrival observed a large crowd of people standing outside. The victim told officers 22 year old Joshua Tawney was yelling obscenities at everyone, stating the parking lot was his, and as bouncers attempted to get Tawney to leave, he reportedly picked up a barbecue grill and threw it, causing a small fire to start in an adjacent parking lot. The victim stated that when he tried to assist the bouncers, Tawney allegedly took a knife and started swinging it at bystanders and did not realize he had been stabbed in the abdomen until someone informed him. The victim denied treatment at the scene and Tawney was later located and arrested at an apartment in the 300 block of Park Street and charged with battery with a deadly weapon.
