On Tuesday we wrote about how Brandon Banks and his friend may have been the instigators in the fight that led to their stabbings, and how Banks’ stab wounds were more serious that originally indicated.
Now, Banks’ agent, Jim Gould, admits that the injuries are more serious than indicated the second time around. Banks was reportedly set to be discharged from the hospital Monday or Tuesday. But, it’s Wednesday, and he’s still in there.
“He has a left chest wound from the knife,” Gould said, according to the Associated Press. “He has a tube inserted in, and until the tube’s removed, he won’t be released from the hospital.” Banks is still expected to make a full recovery.
Gould’s agent also made it clear that his client is not in trouble. “Brandon is a victim in the case, and the investigation is ongoing,” Gould said. “Brandon is not implicated in any wrongdoing.”
