The shocking incident reportedly unfolded on the morning of June 15 at a Kansas City gas station where Scaggs, 58, was working as a security guard.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the incident started after Scaggs confronted a customer for smoking inside the Love's Travel Stop on Ameristar Drive.

“F--- you,” the customer reportedly responded after Scaggs asked that he put out his cigarette. “The f--- you going to do?”

“The victim had numerous cut and stab wounds and was transported to the hospital for treatment,” Kansas City police said after the incident. The victim was also reportedly falling in and out of consciousness when police arrived at the scene.
