TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a New Jersey man awoke after a long night's sleep to discover a knife stuck in his back.
Police in Trenton say the 42-year-old man didn't know why his back was hurting when he got up Sunday so he had his brother take a look. The brother saw a knife protruding from the middle of his back.
Police did not identify the man. They say he had gotten into a fistfight on his porch after a night of drinking and apparently didn't realize he had been stabbed.
Police tell The Times of Trenton ( http://bit.ly/1dhXNF9) the man was uncooperative when detectives tried to talk to him at the hospital. He was expected to be released as early as Monday.
