A 46-year-old Arlington man is in jail Sunday night facing a murder charge in the stabbing death of a man in a Lincoln Square parking lot one week ago.
Pervis Lee Andrews Jr. is accused of stabbing 25-year-old Dustin Marchell McGee in the chest with a knife in front of Palm Beach Tan in the 300 block of Lincoln Square on Nov. 8, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.
According to the affidavit:
The series of events began, a friend of McGee’s told detectives, when they pulled into Lincoln Square off North Collins Street that night and stopped at a stop sign.
Never miss a local story.
McGee tried to turn left but could not complete his turn because of heavy traffic. The driver behind them, Andrews, honked his horn in anger, Arlington Detective Grant Gildon wrote in the affidavit.
Then Andrews walked to McGee’s car and asked him if he had a problem, and McGee said no.
McGee and his friend started to go to Chaucer’s sushi lounge in the 200 block of Lincoln Square at 2 a.m., but left after they saw that everyone else was leaving.
They wound up directly behind Andrews’ vehicle, and this time Andrews was the one blocking traffic, so McGee tried to drive around him.
Visibly upset, Andrews pulled into a parking spot next to Palm Beach Tan and McGee followed. The two men got out and argued.
McGee tried to get back in his car, but Andrews grabbed his door and the two “struck each other multiple times,” according to the affidavit.
Andrews stabbed McGee, the affidavit says, and McGee took off running. Andrews slashed McGee’s tires and then went looking for him, according to the affidavit.
McGee was later found on the ground in front of Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub and Grill.
He was pronounced dead at 2:56 a.m. at John Peter Smith Hospital, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.
Andrews was apprehended when narcotics detectives on another case Saturday found a car that looked like his Mercury Grand Marquis.
While the car didn’t belong to Andrews, the owner said he knew someone with a similar car who was “known to sell narcotics in Arlington,” according to the affidavit.
Detectives ran a check and got a photo and license plate number used to make a positive identification.
Andrews’ criminal record dates to 1987 and includes burglary of a building, evading arrest, harassment and several charges of assault on a family member causing bodily injury, according to public records.
His bail is set at $500,000.
