Lubbock, TX — A man claiming to have the devil living inside of him was arrested this week after police say he attacked an officer of the law with a serrated spatula. And I gotta call bs right off the bat, everyone knows the devil prefers chopsticks.
Officer Bryan Schwartner responded to The Center at Overton Park Tuesday afternoon after receiving a report of a man acting strangely and threatening random people. Schwartner and his partner spotted 20-year-old Kabir Isola on a balcony at the complex and attempted to speak with him.
According to police, when the officers made contact with Isola, the man unexpectedly attacked. After hitting Schwartner with a large, serrated BBQ spatula, Isola reportedly tried to gouge the man’s eyes out. Police say he then began choking Schwartner, rendering him unconscious, and attempted to toss him off the 4th floor balcony. Another officer was able to detain Isola, who claimed the devil was inside him.
Schwartner was transported to the hospital with multiple contusions and lacerations and was later released. After receiving treatment for injuries incurred in the struggle, Isola was transported to jail and booked on charges of attempted capital murder.
