At approximately 9:00 p.m., officers responded to the Twisted Root Bar and Grill, after it was reported that a stabbing had occurred during a fight involving several patrons.

During the course of the investigation, it was found that Scott Charles King, age 61 of Lexington, had been involved in a fight with the two victims and pulled a knife on them. He stabbed both victims several times with non-life-threatening wounds.
Scott King was transported to the Lexington County Detention Center where he was charged with two counts of Assault & Battery High and Aggravated Nature and Possession of a Weapon during a Violent Crime. He was given a bond of $45,000 when seen by a judge at Lexington County Bond Court.
