HALLANDALE, Fla. - Two deaf men were stabbed at the Ocean's Eleven Sports Lounge and Grill, a Hallandale Beach bar, Saturday night when Barbara Lee, another patron, thought the men were throwing gang signs at her, reports WTVJ NBC News-6 in Miami in Miami.
The men, one of whom is deaf and mute, were using sign language.
They were just at the bar to celebrate a birthday.
When Lee, 45, confronted the men, they motioned for her to go away.
She left the bar but returned with 19-year-old Marco Ibanez, who is accused of pulling out a knife and stabbing the men.
Lee and Ibanez remain behind bars, where they'll be learning a whole new language of legal terms.
