LAS VEGAS -- The man arrested after a fatal stabbing outside a McDonald's restaurant used a sharp stick to cause the fatal injury, according to the arrest report.
The suspect, Asa Funderburk, 31, had gone to the restaurant on Sahara Avenue and Paseo Del Prado with the victim, Brandon Pickford, and two other individuals Thursday morning. After leaving the restaurant, Funderburk and Pickford began arguing, witnesses told police. Funderburk said, Pickford would not let him use his cell phone and pushed him into the street (Sahara Avenue) and spit on him.
Funderburk had a 6-inch long pointed stick in his pocket and used it to stab Pickford in the neck, the report said. Pickford, who was bleeding heavily, made his way back toward the restaurant where he collapsed and died.
Police arrested Funderburk at a nearby vacant house. He was booked into Clark County Detention Center on one count of murder with a deadly weapon.
