‘Faggot’-hating drunk tries to stab bro party dude

Add this share

You know it's a drunkenly bad night when you start screaming “faggot” at the guy trying to sit next to you, attack him with a knife and later demand gay sex from two Atlanta cops. Then again, what do you expect from a dude nicknamed “Scar Face.”

And that's how a recent night unfolded for 32-year-old John Dawson (second photo), now sobering up at the Fulton County Jail with a $21,000 bond. Dawson faces charges of aggravated assault, obstruction and possession of marijuana. Because nothing makes a drunken bender better than a baggie with less than an ounce.

The after hours party in northwest Atlanta took an ugly turn when “Scar Face” showed up in the wee hours of April 7, according to an incident report from the Atlanta Police Department.

[The victim] said that they were all sitting in the living room and that “Scar Face” (John Dawson) came in. He said that he always comes in drunk and belligerent. [The victim] said that he was trying to get a spot on the couch. Dawson said about [the victim], “he must be gay, he must be a faggot, cause he's trying to sit next to me.” [The victim] said that Dawson took a swing at him, which he blocked.

Friends at the apartment separated the two men and shuttled the 30-year-old victim into a bedroom to diffuse the situation. It didn't work.

[The victim] said that “Scar Face” came in the bedroom with a knife and said, “I will stab you.” He took a couple of swings at Carter with both his fists and a knife. Dawson stopped and went back into the other room.

That didn't last long.

[The victim] was sitting on the bed talking with someone else when he said he didn't even see Dawson walk in the room but the next thing he knew he was getting hit in the head with the ashtray. [The victim] said that after Dawson hit him in the head with the ashtray his ear was ringing. [The victim] said he went and took a swing at Dawson. Dawson tried to stab him again and that's when [the victim] grabbed the knife and the knife broke.

That didn't stop “Scar Face.” He found another knife, chased the victim outside and that's when police arrived.

I saw [the victim] standing outside of the apartments. He had blood on his shirt and what appeared to be a bloody laceration on the side of his right eye. He also had bleeding cuts on both hands. The alleged perpetrator, John Dawson, came outside. I put the laser beams from my city issued Taser on his person threatening to taser him. I told him to get on the ground and he complied.

But Dawson wasn't done yet.

Once transported to a nearby police precinct “Scar Face” — just a short time earlier offended that some dude would sit so close — became combative and told a police supervisor to “suck his dick.” He then called another office a “bitch” and told him to blow him, too.

Note to “Scar Face”: Police departments really aren't hot spots for gay threesomes.
