One Person Charged In Pool Hall Stabbing

Authorities say the victim was ogling suspect’s wife.

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) – The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office says a pool-hall fight ended in a stabbing after the victim ogled the assailant’s wife.

The Frederick News-Post  reports that 23-year-old Nicholas Lemieux-Renard was released on $75,000 bail Tuesday.  He’s charged with first-degree assault and other offenses in the stabbing Saturday of 28-year-old Matthew Hevener at Champion Billiards near Frederick.

Charging documents say Lemieux-Renard confronted Hevener after Hevener turned from a pool game to watch Lemieux-Renard’s wife walk toward a restroom.

The charging documents say Hevener punched LeMieux-Renard, who then produced a knife and stabbed him in the ribs.

University of Maryland Medical Center Shock Trauma spokesman Michael Schwartzberg says Hevener was in good condition Wednesday afternoon.
