Jameson remained upset, according to the sheriff’s office, and that’s when the victim went confronted him.
The sheriff’s office said Jameson turned around, struck the victim in the upper back and walked away. The victim realized he had been stabbed when blood started running down his arm.

The victim was taken to an area hospital and treated for his injury.
The sheriff’s office said detectives are trying to contact the mother and boyfriend to get their statements.
