According to the Naval Academy’s website, the school “espouse[s] the Navy and Marine Corps’ Core Values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment.” I’m not exactly sure how “threatening a cab driver with a butter knife” fits into that value system, though.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Gabriel Marc Voumard, a midfielder on the Navy’s lacrosse team, and a friend took a taxi from an Annapolis bar back to his house. They didn’t have enough money to pay the fare, so they ran into the house and grabbed a butter knife. When the cabdriver saw the knife, he ran back to the car. Voumard has been charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. I’ll hazard a wild guess, and presume that there was maybe a little bit of alcohol involved.
A very similar butter knife incident took place in San Francisco over the weekend. Beware of the cutlery, readers…
