Beach Bar Brawl Ends With Two Stabbed and Two in Jail

A Panama City man is facing two counts of attempted murder following a double stabbing Friday morning.

The Bay County Sheriff's Office arrested 25-year-old Justin Lee Meeks Friday.
Deputies say Meeks stabbed two men outside the Key West Bar and Grill on Thomas Drive about 2:30 Friday morning.

Meeks was reportedly fighting with a man in the parking lot when the two victims came out of the bar. After they broke up the fight, Meeks got a knife from his car and stabbed one man in the neck, the other in the abdomen.

Both victims were taken to a local hospital.

Meek's girlfriend, 26-year-old Dana Jeanine Copas of Panama City Beach, is charged with aggravated battery for striking a third man in the head with a beer bottle.
