Man Arrested After Prank Goes Awry

Posted: Updated:

A Lexington man was arrested after a prank went horribly wrong.

The incident started Tuesday night when a woman came home to find her boyfriend stabbed and bloodied at their home on Augusta Drive...or so she thought. Police are now saying that man was playing a cruel joke on her. 

"I came through, he had tables flipped over, my chair flipped over.  I walked through and there was blood on the walls," the man's girlfriend told LEX 18's Kristen Pflum.

The woman immediately dialed 911 when she found her boyfriend face down in their bed. He had an eight-inch knife sticking out between his neck and shoulder. He was not moving.

When help arrived, the man admitted he'd covered his neck in red ink to play a joke on her.

"The only time he was hollerin', 'it was a joke,' was when the police came through the door and he had the knife in his hand," said the girlfriend. "He dropped the knife and said, 'it was a prank for my girlfriend because she was a few minutes late from work.'"

He will not be charged for that incident, but unfortunately for him, he already had a warrant out for his arrest on another case.

David Herrera-Giminez was taken into custody. He now faces deportation to Mexico.

The girlfriend told LEX 18 that she is not talking to her boyfriend...we can understand why.
