Hopkinsville Police are investigating one of the more bizarre chain of events one will ever see as a man was reportedly stabbed before wrecking into the front of a Fort Campbell Boulevard business—with DUI charges also levied against him.
The stabbing incident happened first, but was known about last. The first degree assault report says that happened at 883 Honeysuckle Drive, where 25-year old Jeffrey Bess of Fort Campbell had been beaten up and stabbed by multiple suspects between 3 and 9pm.
Bess was able to get away, but had medical complications from the incident and wrecked into the front of Bluegrass Finance at 2512 Fort Campbell Boulevard around 8:30pm. Police found him unresponsive with difficulty breathing and allegedly smelling of alcohol.
Officers did not yet know that he had also been stabbed and the citation for DUI says he became belligerent at the Jennie Stuart Medical Center Emergency Room. He reportedly admitted to being drunk at the hospital.
Medical personnel at Jennie Stuart soon discovered his stab wound and the assault investigation then began. Sgt. Mike Platero said there are currently no suspects known to police. Bess would later be taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
