Jordin Lindsey hurt in fight

Jordin Lindsey was stabbed early Saturday morning in Five Points, which seems to have become a more menacing place since I last lived in Columbia almost six years ago.

In hospital as of this writing.

Columbia police spokesman Brick Lewis, who would not identify Lindsey, said the incident occurred around 4 a.m. in the 2000 block of Greene Street when two men approached a man and an argument turned physical. The two men fled after the stabbing, Lewis said.

No charges have been filed.

Billy Lindsey said Jordin and his twin brother, Dustin, a Gamecocks linebacker, were walking to their truck when the two men started yelling at them from across Greene Street.

"Jordin said he didn't think nothing about it," Billy Lindsey said Saturday night when reached in Mobile, Ala. "He heard quick footsteps behind him. When he turned, he put his right arm up and felt something (on his neck)." ...

This is not the first time one of the Lindseys ran into trouble in Five Points. Dustin Lindsey was arrested following a bar brawl at the popular bar and restaurant district in the spring of 2006.

This doesn't sound like it's still a serious situation, given that Billy Lindsey also says he expects Jordin to be released as soon as Sunday and Jordin was apparently able to talk to his father about the incident.

Thoughts and prayers, of course, to the Lindsey family.
