Man stabbed in confusion over harmonicas. Wait, harmonicas? February 29, 2012

A 52-year-old man who gave someone a ride home stabbed his passenger after he thought the man stole his harmonicas, sheriff’s deputies say.

Bruce Richard Hood remained in the Sarasota County jail today in lieu of $25,000 bail on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

According to an arrest report, Hood agreed to drive home someone he met in a bar Saturday. The two went to a Taco Bell, where the passenger bought a bag of tacos. When the passenger got out of Hood’s car, he thought he grabbed the bag of tacos but later said he may have mistakenly picked up the wrong bag.

The passenger told deputies that Hood got out of the car saying, “Give me my harmonicas.”

Hood is accused of stabbing the other man in the wrist and chest.

Deputies say they found the bag of tacos still on the floorboard of the car.
