PICKENS COUNTY – An Easley man remains in the Pickens County Detention Center on an attempted murder charge for stabbing a man in the throat following a verbal dispute.
Charles Anthony Black, 51, of 505 W. Main St., Apt. 2, was arrested after deputies with the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office responded to a disturbance just after midnight Jan. 28 in the parking lot of The Hot Spot, 3908 Calhoun Memorial Highway.
The investigation showed that Black and Luchino V. Hallums were in a moving vehicle when they had a verbal dispute.
Both men exited the vehicle after pulling into the parking lot at which time Black produced a knife and stabbed Hallums one time in the throat. Hallums was taken to a local hospital where he was admitted following several hours of surgery. Officials said he is expected to survive.
Bond was denied.
