This sentence was a result of an altercation between him and a group of intoxicated people who were trying to harass his fiancé Amanda Schutz. A group was trying to take pictures with them when another disrupted them.
According to police statement the group were behaving in a rude and insulting manner, leading him to believe which led him to believe that there was going to be a brawl. He closed their tab and started to get their coats but when he turned around, he saw that Amanda was bleeding and two of them were holding her hair.
He went to get Amanda when a man held him from behind and he stabbed him with the pen he had used to sign the credit card receipt. He later admitted that it was actually a knife.
The man he stabbed said he barely felt it and the police reported that the wound he made was not dangerous. Still he was in possession of a weapon and had used it against another man in a fight that could have been life threatening.
Dustin stated that there was a lot of chaos and people grabbing him so he just moved his hands around violently which resulted into catching the other man with the knife. He said that it was an unintentional action which he meant nothing by.
He added that it was one of the most horrible experiences of his life that he would not like to experience ever again. Amanda was by his side when he got out of the courtroom.
"I want it to be clear that this situation will be not repeated again," he told the court (via CNN), calling the fight the "single most terrifying experience of my entire life."
