Florida … just like the old west! ‘Wyatt Earp’ stabbed man during feud over pork rind. July 17, 2012

An argument over the possession of a bag of pork rinds led to one man being  stabbed in the neck three times with a broken beer bottle.

The victim, Edward Hooks, told officers he and a man named “Cowboy” were  playing Dominoes in the Rancho Alegre nightclub when the argument began.

They argued over the pork rinds and a missing cell phone, according to the  victim and witnesses.

Cowboy, whose real name is Will Moore Traywick and who also answers to Wyatt  Earp, broke a beer bottle and stabbed Hooks, according to witness  statements.

When a Fort Walton Beach Police Department officer arrived, Hooks was lying  on the floor, bleeding from the neck.

He was taken by ambulance to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, according to  Rick Hord, spokesman for the Fort Walton Beach Police Department. He is expected  to survive his injuries.

Traywick, 50, fled the scene on a bicycle, but was found 20 minutes later in  the restroom of a fast food restaurant, according to his arrest report.

He has been charged with aggravated battery.

Traywick has no known address.
