Man Stabbed His Friend Over $5 Debt

Tags: Anthony Lemar Mells, gambling debt, Leonard Hornsby.
Posted on 11 February 2015 by "T".

On Friday, a stabbing over an alleged gambling $5 debt took place in a parking lot in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The accused, 51-year-old Anthony Lemar Mells (picture), stabbed a man he known for several years twice in the stomach and once in the head. 

The victim, Leonard Hornsby, 47, has been undergoing surgeries for multiple stab wounds, and he identified Mells as his attacker in a photo lineup on Sunday. Mells was arrested and admitted to police that he intentionally stabbed Hornsby with a knife he found on the ground. He's now facing one count of attempted murder.

It appears that this isn't the only crazy (and stupid) thing that has happened in Florida this year. Last month, Buzzfeed listed 24 stupid things that happened in just the first week of 2015. Enjoy!

Remind me never to borrow a fiver from this guy
 marqis11/02/2015 15:18:32 GMT
It's the thought that counts, not the amount. This guy has principles...
 arsenej111/02/2015 15:29:04 GMT
Lol yah he doe
 pochui11/02/2015 16:05:49 GMT
now you see why there is a forum rule #whatever that doesn't allow brm'ers ask for a loan... they are concerned that half of ~600K mobbits might stab one another... that's really bad business from their point of view.

...lol... That would be a blood-bath...! Big Smile

Notice the guy claimed to have found the knife on the ground... HOW convenient...! Cool

Claiming that, could mean the difference between a 'pre-meditated' act,...and one you just 'find' yourself in...!

I think buddy ultimately carries a knife to stab someone for whatever reason... so he should be guilty of a more serious offence... Smile

Wow......that is harsh and this guy who had to borrow $5 sounds incredibly unlucky,first to borrow money from one very crazy guy and secondly to be confronted in a parking lot where there are knives left on the floor!!
 kaidamurai12/02/2015 01:25:52 GMT
him "finding" the knife will get his charge reduced to Voluntary Manslaughter. it sucks but that is how the American Justice System works... so many loop holes its crazy.
 superthight12/02/2015 01:54:09 GMT
well.just dont what is suppose to do .so much violated people today wow,im just earning points here wth is that kind of news i heard with only just 5box and thats all what happen...
 doubletop77712/02/2015 10:18:23 GMT
This is another crazy story, how the guy can say that he just found the knife on the floor is unbelievable. I think that there must be more to this than just a five dollar debt.

The $5 strongly smells as a random excuse to hide more illegal deals who brought the man stabbling his "friend"

yeah, he probably han another $2 loan from earlier time
 leno112/02/2015 21:34:09 GMT
Here you can see that even little money like 5 bucks can be enough to get killed. So everybody in here should clearly think about, if he is not owing someone some money even if its not much. You know what can happen to you! Big Smile

he wanted his comb back imo
 toronto_r_us14/02/2015 05:42:23 GMT
5 dollars for his crack, get rid of them all
 bowie198416/02/2015 22:08:16 GMT
I would pay five bucks to see this guy fight with somebody in a prison produced MMA gathering that is for sure. By the way these petty crimes not exclusive to the USA, where I live I saw way worse things happening over way less value so again, scums are everywhere to be found - even in good old Europe.
 bowie198420/02/2015 22:26:14 GMT
On second thought he must have said to his friend: it's not about the money, it's about the principles. Every crooked guy has principles - even though they are not up to anybody's ethical standards but they are still their principles. $5 worth of morality tales.
 raymonvdhaak21/02/2015 19:02:16 GMT
offcource its usa , everyting is possible there Tongue Tongue Tongue for 5 dollar just sick
 bowie198422/02/2015 22:34:32 GMT
Everything is possible evreywhere as I mentioned previously here - you don't need to be livin' in the good old US of A to meet some truly questionable characters, I can tell some interesting tales who did what and when for around the same sum and ended up in a similar situation. Big Smile
Europe is not that much different you know.
 pajalnick23/02/2015 09:02:20 GMT
There probably is not in the amount of debt. Maybe the debtor said the killer words for which he simply had to kill? Words hurt and kill more bullets and knives.
I have a few debts ... I hope that I will not kill for them)) I am a very polite person, especially with some ...
 bowie198423/02/2015 22:37:30 GMT
You mean some people owe you money, right? Did I understand you right?
Of course there is no reason to stab somebody over money if they are made up their mind over their debt that no amount of phisical threat gonna help you pay them on time. That just how the brain works.
