Police: Paul Spadafora stabbed brother, fought with officers

This is just the latest in a long, long line of incidents for Paul Spadafora.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Paul Spadafora seems to be dead set on proving that he’s a genuine menace to society. Spadafora is currently in jail for allegedly stabbing his brother in the thigh during an arguement and then getting into it with police who were called to intervene.

Spadafora is said to have allegedly threatened the responding police officers, telling his mother to "get all their names. I know they have to live in the city. I'm gonna kill them." Then, according to police, when Spadafora tried to hurl an object at the responding officers, they were forced to use a stun gun on him and then put a mask on him after he tried to spit on them.

Spadafora has been charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats and aggravated harassment by a prisoner. Spadafora was unable to immediately post his $100,000 bail and has a preliminarily hearing set for Jan. 4.

This incident comes just months after Spadafora attacked an elderly woman at a local pub, putting her in a headlock while drinking her beer as she was minding her own business. When she went outside to call police, Spadafora followed her and threw her to the ground. The woman suffered scrapes to her knees and hands and Spadafora agreed to take anger management classes to settle those charges.

In his most infamous incident, Spadafora had to serve over a year in a state prison boot camp after shooting his then-pregnant girlfriend in 2003.

Spadafora had a very promising boxing career at one point, but all of his issues outside of the ring derailed his potential. Now we’re most concerned with any and everyone who crosses paths with the man.
