Steve Buscemi's Alleged Stabber In Court

The man accused of stabbing actor STEVE BUSCEMI made his first appearance in New Hanover County District Court, America, on Monday (16APR01) - charged with cutting the actor's head, throat and arm in a bar fight last week.

TIMOTHY WILLIAM FOGERTY, 21, appeared before JUDGE JOHN CARROLL who did not adjust the $50,000 (33,000) bail bond which Fogerty paid on Friday (13APR01).

Fogerty waived his right to court-appointed counsel. He has hired Wilmington lawyer BILL PEREGOY to represent him on the charge of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury.

Actor VINCE VAUGHN, screenwriter SCOTT ROSENBERG, and KENNETH ROBERT PURGASON of Wilmington were charged with affray, a misdemeanour, in the incident. All are free on bail.

A warrant on Vaughn was issued Monday on a misdemeanour assault charge. The charge alleges Vaughn struck a man standing by, but not involved in the melee. (SVD/WN/RP)
