Man Stabbed; Didn't Know of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's Marriage

Ronald Deaver (Fox 8 Cleveland)

Straight from our ridiculous file, a 31-year-old Ohio man was arrested after a fight over a music video led to a stabbing on New Year's Eve.

Cleveland police told Fox 8 that Ronald Deaver was arrested and charged with felonious assault for allegedly stabbing a 48-year-old man after an argument. 


What sparked the argument? The victim apparently did not know that Beyoncé's husband is Jay-Z.

The arrest report obtained by Fox 8 News states the alleged stabbing occurred around 11:00 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2011, outside Deaver's apartment. Detective Marty Compton says that authorities were called following the stabbing, and the victim was taken to a local hospital. He was later transferred to MetroHealth Medical Center, where he is currently listed in good condition.


This has us shaking our heads, especially after rapper Slim Dunkin was reportedly murdered over a stolen piece of candy. Values are seriously misplaced in our community when lives can be taken over meaningless incidents. How do we begin to change the conversation?
