MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Police in Memphis say a convenience store customer who complained about being sold bad chicken allegedly stabbed a worker in the store’s parking lot.

Media outlets report 60-year-old David Haslett was charged with aggravated assault after the incident Friday night.

Memphis police spokesman Louis Brownlee says officers found the victim was cleaning the parking lot when Haslett approached him and said he wanted his money back because he was sold bad chicken. Officers found the victim with a stab wound in the leg.

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Haslett is being held on $40,000 bond pending a court hearing Monday. It wasn’t immediately known whether Haslett has an attorney to comment on the allegations.
