JACKSON HOLE, WYO – A Las Vegas, Nevada man has been charged with two felony counts – assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm and assault which resulted in serious bodily injury – in connection with an early morning altercation at the employee dormitory adjacent to Jackson Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park.

Vincent Hagey, 32, is accused of stabbing a fellow employee in the stomach after an argument some time around 1:30 a.m. Friday, June 28. Park Rangers took Hagey into custody, according to park spokesperson Jackie Skaggs. The victim, whose identity is not known at this time, was transported to St. John’s Medical Center, treated and released.

Hagey was arraigned before U.S. Magistrate James K. Lubing on Monday.

Jake is a wedding DJ. He also blabs on the radio at 103.7 FM The Range weekday mornings. He does other things besides write. In fact, it is probably readily apparent that journalism is not his forte. He already knows this so when blogging things like: "8th grade writing level" and "immature reporting" these are not considered insults. In some cases, they read like encouragement.

    I’ve worked there, and they don’t do good enough background checks on their seasonal employees. I’m not surprised to read of this incident.

      How many people live in this place for this story to be such a headline, five? “They don’t do good background checks[?] . . . I’ve worked there.”

      What? Do you have a mile-long rap sheet they overlooked? … because Vince sure doesn’t.

      I’m surprised to even be reading these ALLEGATIONS and the ignorant comments on various websites. I love how the public plays the roles of jury, judge and God.

      Let’s see how “surprised” you are one day when you end up with a friend or a loved one being tried in the news by people who don’t even know them.
