His agent, Gary Wichard, told The Associated Press that a passenger in a car driving the wrong way down the road got out and took a "swipe" at Taylor. Wichard said it was "nothing at all" and calls it a "minor situation," not a stabbing.

Whether it was a real stabbing or not, that's just crazy! What is this world coming to?

I'm going to have to go with Option #1 Bob


BTW, it's Immigrant day down here and things are pretty damn quiet...it's so nice, and on top of that, so far today I have been able to get everything I need at a Grocery Store, Convenience Store, Dry Cleaning, ROSS, even a tire repaired if I need to, and let's not forget Taco Bell, they're still open.

Only thing is, if I wanted to buy a cheap hub cap I'd be shit out of luck, oh yeah and the check cashing place is closed too.

Other than that, looks like hte only people missing the "immigrants" are the "immigrants" themselves, or the Hispanic population down here that shops in those places.

I'll bet it was Ray Lewis. He was probably back for some U. of Miami function.

No, Ray-Ray would have finished the job. I'm thinking since the job was done so poorly it had to be a Mexican.

It was a white guy. So, clearly, a hate crime.

Man faces hate crime charges for attack on Taylor

DAVIE, Fla. -- The man charged with assaulting Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor faces hate crime charges, police said Monday.

Redmond Charles Burns, 24, allegedly used racial epithets and yelled obscenities at Taylor, who is black, during an alleged highway confrontation Sunday night. Taylor told police that Burns grabbed his shirt, ripping it in several places, and suffered a "minor laceration" on a forearm from a metal object Burns allegedly used to attack him.

Taylor, who played in a charity golf tournament Monday in Tampa, said in a statement issued by the Dolphins that his injury was minor.

"My wife and I were the victims in an unfortunate incident last night, but we are both fine," Taylor said.

Burns, who is white, faces charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, which police have also classified as a hate crime that would permit tougher penalties. Burns also is charged with obstruction for allegedly resisting arrest after Taylor identified him from a photo array.

Burns was being held Monday on $10,600 bond at the Broward County jail. It wasn't immediately clear Monday if he had a lawyer to represent him.

Taylor, 31, has played nine seasons with the Dolphins and emerged as one of the team's best defensive players. Last season Taylor had 12 quarterback sacks among his 52 tackles. For his career, Taylor has 540 tackles and 92 sacks.

According to Davie police, Taylor and his wife, Katina, were on their way home from church Sunday evening when Taylor saw a red pickup truck backing up at an intersection in the path of his car. Katina Taylor is the sister of Zach Thomas, another starting Dolphins linebacker.

As Taylor attempted to pass, the driver of the pickup "intentionally swerved directly at Taylor" and caused him to run off the road.

The passenger in the truck, who wasn't charged, allegedly got out and started to bang on the hood of Taylor's trunk. The 6-foot-6, 255-pound Taylor then got out of his car and was confronted by the 5-foot-11, 168-pound Burns, who was allegedly yelling racial insults and threatening to kill Taylor, according to a police report.

After grabbing Taylor's shirt, Burns allegedly went back to his truck, got an "unknown metal object" and tried to stab Taylor with it. Taylor suffered a minor wound to his left forearm but declined medical treatment.

Both men then jumped back in the truck and took off, with Taylor following and dialing 911. He lost the truck in a trailer park but was able to identify Burns from a photo lineup that police provided.

Taylor has a home in Davie, which is also the location of the Dolphins' training facility.

I hate hate crimes. Wait, can I go to jail for that?

Love crimes are much better, though. You know, when you stab some bitch in the face and feed her cat a bunch of antifreeze, but you do it because you love them so much.
