A young couple are in jail due to a stabbing that occurred while playing a knife game on a Megabus.
The following story is a good example of why you shouldn’t play with knives on moving vehicles and how lying might make things worse.
Knife Game Gone Ary
Tuesday, March 6, while traveling south on I-65 on a Megabus, 19-year-old Lebria Earstein Graham of North Chicago and 19-year-old Xavier Collins of Waukegan, Illinois, allegedly decided that a good way to spend time in a moving vehicle would be to play a “game” with a knife.
During the game, Graham stabbed Collins in the leg. After the stabbing, the bus driver pulled over the Megabus at approximately 6:00 a.m. to a gas station at 2119 E. Tipton Street and awaited the police.
The Police Arrive
When police arrived, they first brought Collins to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour, Indiana to treat his stab wound. Graham, in the meantime, was arrested for preliminary charges of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and battery with a deadly weapon.
When Collins was released from the hospital, police went to ask him a few more questions. He became uncooperative and was charged with obstruction of justice and false informing after not only being uncooperative to police, but also giving officers a false name during the initial investigation.
Both Graham and Collins are being held without bail at Jackson County Jail in Brownstown, Indiana until their first court date.
