ALBANY, Ga. -- An argument about burning trash in a barrel led to a fight in which one man suffered a knife wound at about 7:55 p.m. Monday at East Park Mobile Home Park, said a Dougherty County Police Department official.

Joshua Halley, 25, was taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital with a knife wound after the fight, said county police Capt. Tom Jackson. A hospital spokeswoman on Tuesday said Halley was not in the facility.

Christopher Grant, 20, was arrested and taken to Dougherty County Jail, where he was charged with aggravated assault, Jackson said.

Jackson said warrants were sworn out for the arrest of the others involved in the 3203 Sylvester Road fight including Coby Grant, Christopher Grant's brother, and Evelyn Harp, a friend of Halley.

There was an argument about someone burning trash in Grant's trash barrel, Jackson said. The brothers went to confront Halley, found that they were at the wrong place and began to walk away, he added.

The argument continued with all four people involved, police said. A physical fight erupted, Jackson said. Halley suffered a cut by a "blue knife" wielded by Christopher Grant, Jackson concluded.

He looks like a Dale Earhard fan, you know little eyes, real close together, trying to emulate the intimidator.

Seems like all that could have been avoided if both parties continued to just walk away.

If the information is incorrect, you need to please inform the Dougherty County Police Department, so that they can then inform us and we'll be happy to correct it. Until then, the official police account is what we go by.
