    Garage sale goes violent when seller stabbed with pitchfork

    Posted September 29 2006, 11:25 AM EDT

    PORT ST. LUCIE -- He's seen machetes, utensils and knives.

    "A pitchfork?" asked Officer Robert Vega, police spokesman. "Now I've seen it all."

    That was Vega's reaction to a Wednesday report of a garage sale turned violent, an argument between buyer and seller that allegedly ended with the buyer using a pitchfork to stab the seller in the hand.

    Clebert Leger, 40, of the 2200 block of Southeast Mariola Avenue, was arrested on an aggravated battery charge.

    Freddy Rich, 47, sustained an injury consistent with his account of "being stuck with a pitchfork," an arrest affidavit states.

    The 6 p.m. incident in the 2200 block of Southeast Manor Avenue happened as Rich conducted a garage sale.

    According to police, Leger wanted to buy $160 worth of merchandise, but didn't have enough money. He went to an ATM and returned with $100, saying he wanted to take the items then and come back Thursday with $60.

    "F. Rich told C. Leger either give him the cash now or write a check for the full amount," the report states. "F. Rich stated that C. Leger started a verbal argument and told C. Leger several times to get off his property."

    With that, Leger allegedly grabbed a couple of knives that were on sale and "was going to attack" Rich, who told Leger he'd use pepper spray on Leger if he didn't leave.

    Leger then "went into more of a rage" and dropped the knives before grabbing a pitchfork from the garage and stabbing Rich in the hand.

    Leger told police that Rich kept his $100, but Rich and his 20-year-old son denied taking money from Leger.

    "C. Leger stated that F. Rich was the one who got mad and grabbed an axe and was going to attack him," the report shows.

    When an officer explained to Leger that Rich's injury was a puncture as opposed to a slice, Leger then said Rich got the puncture wounds when he grabbed the pitchfork to attack him.

    "As my investigation and questions went on . . . I noticed C. Leger was not able to keep the same statement," the report states.

    Leger was released Thursday from the St. Lucie County jail on $10,000 bail, a jail official said.
