Man stabbed during argument over sunglasses

February 11, 2016

One man is in the hospital with three stab wounds and another is in jail following a violent dispute over a pair of sunglasses outside the Sportsman in Santa Barbara on Wednesday.

Shortly after noon, while people ate their lunches at local eateries, the men began arguing near the corner of State and Figueroa streets. The arguments escalated as the men walked down Figueroa Street towards Norton’s Pastrami and Deli.

The men then faced off, and one of the men ripped the sunglasses off the face of the other man and tossed the sunglasses on the roof of the Sportsman, a small dive bar. The suspect then stabbed the man who took his sunglasses three times in the face and upper body. The wounds were non-life-threatening.

After the stabbing, the suspect tossed the knife up on the roof near his sunglasses, called 911 to report the stabbing and was arrested by police.

So at this frequency, is this now how S.M. tells time? Hey Bob is it a quarter past stabbing or a quarter till stabbing?


We do not see the world as it is, we see the world as we are…thru rose colored glasses.


Oh man, you guys don’t know anything do you? This is actually really big news!

Good connection. However, I think Santa Maria just migrated south for the day.




Saw that movie when it came out. Horrible cheesey B movie…………..and I love it! Cult classic. Best line………..I came here to chew bubble gum and kick ass and I’m all out of bubble gum.


I love using that line and then looking around to see the one or two smiles from someone who gets it. :)


His future isn’t so bright, so I guess he doesn’t need them anymore.

A stabbing. Let me guess.

How many more sunglasses-related stabbings will we endure? Ban sunglasses. They don’t have them in other countries…
