Ian MacDonald's Lawyer: Cops Have "Exactly Nothing"; Also Says Client Has "Top Security Clearance"
"It should be noted that [MacDonald] was the [first] 911 caller who advised that his Girlfriend has been stabbed in the face by a Bouncer who took off running," the probable-cause statement says.
MacDonald's girlfriend, 22-year-old Samantha King, had not been stabbed in the face.
A probable-cause statement cites three anonymous acquaintances of MacDonald, who said MacDonald admitted to them he had the knife -- and stabbed Thompson. All three of these acquaintances told police that MacDonald said he'd chucked the knife in a dumpster in Mesa. One person said MacDonald admitted to putting the knife in a Ziploc bag of liquid bleach before tossing it in the dumpster.
MacDonald faces a second-degree murder charge, and King was arrested on charges of assault and hindering prosecution.
