MORGANTOWN STABBING -
Police in Morgantown confirmed what appears to have been a stabbing from the weekend. It is officially under investigation.
The only problem is the victim was said to have been so intoxicated that police are having a hard time figuring out what happened.
The incident happened during what has been called a St. Patrick's riot on and around the WVU campus, where students and visitors set at least 30 fires.
The weekend ended with violence and several arrests.
38-year-old Jimmy Stephenson was walking along the rail trail in Morgantown when he was allegedly confronted by a man who stabbed him with a pocket knife.
Stephenson was taken to Mon General Hospital then later transferred to Ruby Memorial Hospital.
The so-called riot was filmed by a crew and has placed on YouTube.
