    Hmmmm, another smelly incident. 1st of all, was the "girlfriend" charged and arrested for assault with a deadly weapon? Were either of them robbed? Were there any witnesses? It seems very coincidental that "two guys" showed up (I presume on foot), hopping into his truck, assaulting him, and then driving off. What was the so-called "girlfriend" doing while this was going on? Could she have been "friends" with the 2 guys?? Lastly, not to be perceived as being an anti-drug paranoid dude, but... could this be a drug-deal gone wrong?? Sounds fishy to me.
