Arrested Man Lists Self As ‘Drug Dealer’

HOLIDAY, Fla. (UPI) — Police said a man who allegedly stabbed another man and lists his occupation as “drug dealer” was arrested on a probation violation.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said Deaundre Barnes, 22, allegedly stabbed Thomas Grippo, 23, at a home in Holiday during a fight sparked when Barnes told Grippo and his girlfriend to “shut up” early Sunday morning, the Tampa Bay Times, St. Petersburg, Fla., reported Wednesday.

Grippo told police he didn’t realize he’d been stabbed until he arrived home and discovered he was bleeding.

Police said Barnes was sentenced to five years of drug offender probation in June and is listed by the Florida Department of Corrections as an “absconder/fugitive.”

Barnes was taken to the Pasco jail and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and violating his probation.
