Cops: CB Radio Conversation Led to Trucker's Stabbing Death

The Washtenaw County sheriff's department says a 44-year-old man was stabbed to death at a Scio Township truck stop Saturday after a conversation on a CB radio led to a confrontation.

The department tells The Ann Arbor News officers got a call Saturday to the TA Travel Center in Scio Township, about 35 miles west of Detroit.

They say Gregory A. Hobalt of Davenport, Iowa, was pronounced dead at the University of Michigan Hospitals.

Authorities are holding a 36-year-old man from Garland, Texas, while they determine charges.

They say the suspect apparently made offensive comments on the CB radio about the 10-year-old daughter of Hobalt's girlfriend.
