Man turns himself in after stabbing outside McDonald's
The man who police say stabbed himself outside of a Sherwood McDonalds restaurant has turned himself into police.
Jamie Hearing, 31, of Nehalem, turned himself into the Sherwood Police Department on Aug. 9 and was charged with initiating a false police report and disorderly conduct.
Hearing was lodged at the Washington County Jail, he has since been released.
At around 9 a.m., Thursday, Aug. 2 , Hearing was outside the Sherwood McDonalds, 21335 S.W. Sherwood Blvd., where he allegedly stabbed himself in the lower back. He later told police that he had been walking in the restaurants parking lot when someone came up behind him, stabbing him and stealing his wallet.
Sherwood Police and the Washington County Major Crimes Team later determined, however, that the wound was likely self-inflicted, according to Capt. Mark Daniel, a spokesman for the Sherwood Police Department.
Police shut down the McDonalds for several hours after the incident. Hearing was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
