Man sentenced for stabbing boss with box cutter

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- A man who attacked his supervisor with a box cutter will spend a year at Silverdale.

After that, Lonnie Savage will spend more than a decade on probation, with mental health counseling.

Savage was arrested two years ago, accused of brutally stabbing his supervisor at ADM Southern Cellulose Company, on West 45th Street in Chattanooga.

Tommy Sims told police Savage cut him with a box cutter several times after he told Savage to go home for being insubordinate. 

Sims said Savage was angry because he felt like he wasn't being treated fairly. 

At his sentencing, Savage said he deeply regrets the attack.
