Fort Myers Beach, FL – Oren Turner, 53, is facing charges for allegedly stabbing another man in the eye with a fork earlier this month.
Police say Turner and the victim, Robert McEwen, had been involved in a physical altercation at the Shrimp Docks restaurant on January 12, and Turner apparently got his ass handed to him. Upset at losing the battle, Turner fled the eatery and went home to arm himself. His weapon of choice…a fork. As he was leaving the home, Turner reportedly told his roommate that he intended to stab McEwen with the fork because he beat him up.
As McEwen and a lady friend were walking past her residence at the Sunnyland Mobile Home Park, Turner approached with his fork and planted it squarely in McEwen’s eyeball. The victim was transported to the hospital with a ruptured globe, a tear in the outer surface of the eyeball, and later underwent surgery to repair the damage.
Turner was arrested late last week and charged with felony battery. Thanks, Dakota!Tags: Battery, Florida
