Man stabbed in Ford versus Chevrolet dispute in Gordon County

Police believe a man stabbed his friend after the two men got into a weekend argument over whether Ford or Chevrolet vehicles were better.

Police say Zachary Wood, 21, of Calhoun, and several friends were driving their four-wheel-drive vehicles in a field off Beamer Road when an argument broke out.

Wood and another young man, whose name hasn’t been released, began a fistfight and then Wood pulled out a knife and stabbed the man, Gordon County Sheriff Mitch Ralston said in a news release.

The man was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, and Wood was taken to the Gordon County Jail, Ralston said.

Wood was charged with aggravated assault, the sheriff said.

Which one of the combatants was the Ford man? Which was the Chevy man? How about some reporting here? Obviously, you are missing the importance of this debate. If the stabbing victim was the Chevy man, they ought to throw the book at the knife-wielding animal that attacked him. If the stabbing victim was the Ford man, perhaps some counselling and anger management would be in order for the young man who let his emotions get the best of him.

This could start another Civil War with brothers fighting against brothers. NASCAR tracks will become battlefields. Families will get torn asunder. Gordon County will have etched itself a place in history.. Chattanoogans will align with Germany as the entire world gets drawn into the fray...Das Auto!

I'll go for Chevy cars!! Considering its style both internal and external accessories and other Chevy parts, they excel more than that of Ford. I think the performance of engine is somehow the same! :D
