What a horrible incident.

In the early morning hours of April 8, Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland and his wife, Katrine Saltara, were stabbed outside of 1OAK nightclub in NYC.

While the details are a bit convoluted, it all started when Chris and Katrine were arguing outside of the venue. According to an onlooker, a man named Shezoy Bleary tried to intervene in the twosome's fight which did not sit well with Copeland.

Apparently Bleary was so upset by the basketball star's rebuff that he viciously attacked the couple and their close friend with a knife.

Sheesh, why do people think violence is ever the answer?!

Thankfully Chris and Katrine are in stable condition at Bellevue Hospital and they're expected to make a full recovery.

NBA legend Larry Bird released the following statement about the incident:
