Upon arriving at Foothills, Crews pulled his knife again and demanded a ride to Murfreesboro, but Vetter said no again. Crews stabbed Vetter and a struggled ensued. Vetter got the knife away from Crews and threw it under the vehicle. Vetter walked across Hwy 53 to Los 3 Amigos to get help.
Manchester Officer Ben Sneed located Crews and made the arrest.
