On the evening of May 30, University of Delaware wide receiver Mark Duncan staggered to the emergency room in his college town of Newark after being stabbed. Duncan was Delaware’s leading receiver last year and ran a kickoff back for a touchdown in the 2007 national championship game. Six weeks after the incident, someone’s finally been arrested in connection with the assault — him! Wha?
While it’s still not clear exactly how Duncan ended up with a hole in his side, police have determined that none of the various stories Duncan came up with (and there were a few just that night) have checked out. And they aren’t too happy about wasting their time looking for a stabber that doesn’t exist.
