Seating for a panel took a nasty turn yesterday at the annual Comic-Con event in San Diego when one adult male stabbed another near the eye with a pen, according to KTLA. In a video interview with NeonTommy, a San Diego Police officer notes that the incident resulted in one arrest, but did not affect the security levels at the popular event and the "show will go on" as planned. The victim's injuries were considered minor. More from Comic-Con: Celebs, Superheroes, Babes, and Fans Invade San Diego for Annual Comic-Con Gathering (Photos).
