Nerd Fite or Fill ElMOAR goes to San Diego.
A Comic-Con attendee stabbed another near the eye with a pen Saturday after they got into an argument over whether one was sitting too close to the other, police said. (me: lol)
The injured man, in his 20s, was taken to a hospital with a minor cut, said San Diego Police Officer David Stafford. The attacker, also in his 20s, was arrested and booked for assault with a deadly weapon, he said.
The incident took place in the San Diego Convention Center while fans were waiting for a panel featuring actor Seth Rogen discussing the science-fiction comedy "Paul."
"The room was very crowded and the males argued over one male sitting too close to the other," Stafford said.
The suspect was later seen being led away in handcuffs. He had on a blue "Harry Potter" T-shirt.
The panel was delayed for about 30 minutes while attendees were shown a series of movie trailers.
"Well, there is a crowd issue. It's gotten really crowded. And if anything, an incident like this points to the need for more space," convention-goer Zennie Abraham told iReport -- the CNN website that allows people to submit pictures and videos.
"Should Comic-Con be in San Diego? I think so, but San Diego's got to make more space for it. It's become too big and I didn't think anything like this could happen because it's a chill event but it did happen."
Comic-Con, the annual gathering of self-proclaimed fanboys and fangirls, began Thursday and concludes Sunday. Aside from the stabbing, the convention has proceeded without incident so far, Stafford said.
Really, the Harry Potter T Shirt comment makes the whole thing worth while.
I think the story would be a lot better if the dude started waving the pen around and saying Expecto Patronum (however the hell you spell it) before stabbing the guy.
Someone really should have told him that wasn't his wand. Puberty is rough with all that testosterone flying around... especially if it doesn't start until you're well into your 20's...
The only thing that let me down is that their fight wasn't over something funnier.
You;ve never seen the Comic-Con fatties, have you?
Room IS worth fighting for.
