Black man, Tracey Attaway, arrested & charged with stabbing US Marine Cpl. Phillip Duggan as he attempted to shoplift laptop at Augusta Best Buy store.
Tracey Attaway of Waynesboro, Ga., was arrested and charged with stabbing a Marine, Cpl. Pillip Dugan, who was helping to subdue him during a shoplifting attempt at a Best Buy store in Augusta Friday morning. Duggan and three other Marines were outside the store collecting donations for Toys for Tots. According to the Augusta Chronicle, Attaway, who is black, was charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a knife in the commission of a crime. What a dirtbag!
Orvin Smith, a sales manager at Best Buy, said the incident occurred about 1:15 p.m. when a man was seen on surveillance videos placing a laptop under his jacket. Store staff asked Attaway to return the merchandise, and the situation began to escalate.
“He was really irate. A whole lot of energy. … he finally let go of the laptop, ran out the front door, knocked one of my employees down and pulled out a knife so he could make sure he could get out the front door,” Smith said.

Attaway also attempted to steal two digital cameras, an XBox game, a PS3 game and a PS3 game controller, according to the Augusta Chronicle. This dirtbag was up to no good and thankfully he will be off the streets for some time.
