    And based on the names I see, some were too young to be at a party.

    Yes i was there. The argument was over a person who was too old to be at the party. It was one punch, there was nothing that could have been done. If you werent there then stay out of it.. Yall obviously have nothing else to but sit here and assume stuff.

      How old is TOO old to be at a party?
      Glad I wasn’t there.
      “Assume” stuff? You’re the one giving a play-by-play. I’m sure you just bought yourself a subpeona!
      Were there any females there? Is sounds like it was a “don’t ask, don’t tell” party???????

    It’s obvious it was over a girl (knowing how he is) and it’s obvious he and his friends will lie about it because he’s married. Case closed.

    LOL –”… which one was going to sing the solo in church choir on sunday?”
    “NAH! Close — but no cigar.”

    I heard through the grapevine that they had been watching ‘Evening at the Apollo’ and were ‘snapping’ “yo mama” jokes!

    One guy said: “ ‘Yo’ mama is so ugly that if she was a scarecrow — the corn would run away!”

    When the other guy snapped back with: “ ‘Yo’ mama is so ugly that you have to tie a steak around her neck so the dog will play with her” — the fight was on!

    I know both parties involved and I am NOT suprised that Mr. Falcone was involved in this type of incident. Not his first offense.

    TO Kimboe43: if the paper is a lie then get them to print a retraction. They can use slander or defamation of character as I am sure Mr. Falcone already has a lawyer. Not the first time he has been in trouble for fighting best I can remember.

      Errors in grammar doesn’t make them liars or in other words untrustworthy with their news. I’m fairly sure they are relaying the information a deputy wrote in his report after performing an investigation.

    The sad thing is the paper lies. It was not over a girl of any sort, no girl had anything to do with the disagreement! It’s a disgrace the newspaper would put false information. It was just a common disagreement and poor choice of words that lead to this. Way to go tidewater news!

    Look around on this website. I am more concerned about the age of the girl and what they were fighting over.

      Why would a 24 year old be fighting with a 19 year old over a girl.

        That’s what I was wondering. I thought the 24 year old was married…
