Man arrested after bar attack

Deputies: Bartender, 3 patrons sliced by angry man

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH, Fla. - A 50-year-old man is accused of attacking four people with a fillet knife in an Indian Rocks Beach bar.

The Tampa Bay Times reports James Klingbeil was at the Red Lion Pub at closing time Sunday when the bartender refused to sell him alcohol because he was intoxicated.

Pinellas County deputies say Klingbeil walked to a nearby store, bought a knife and returned to the pub. He started arguing with 32-year-old bartender Rebecca Shaeffer again before pulling out the knife and attacking her.

Three bar patrons were injured as they tried to help Shaeffer. The injuries didn't appear to be life-threatening.

Deputies say Klingbeil remains in the Pinellas County Jail on charges including attempted first-degree murder.
