Update: Switched the drinkers. Osaka was drinking beer from a wine glass. Hayes (the friend) poked fun at him. Argument escalated. Olaska stabbed Wild.
Stupid. Absolutely stupid. An argument arose from the defendant drinking beer from a wine glass in a bar in Naperville, Illinois. William Hayes, a total stranger minutes ago, poked fun at the situation. The argument escalated, and the suspect tried to stab Hayes. Shaun Wild, and elementary schoolteacher, was nearby and tried to intervene as did a bar employee. Olaska tried to leave, Wild tried to stop him, and Olaska stabbed him in the heart. Olaska eventually admitted the crime to the police, and is charged with 1st degree murder. Police investigating said – “I’ve had a lengthy police career and I’ve never seen anything that made less sense.”
Olaska was drinking beer from a wine glass, and Hayes ribbed him about it, Assistant State’s Atty. Tim Diamond said in bond court. The incident escalated, Diamond said, and both men stood up. Wild, who was nearby, attempted to intervene, authorities said.
Then Olaska reportedly pulled out his five-inch-long folding knife and lunged at Hayes and Wild. The blade sliced Wild on the arm and went into Hayes’ chest, Berlin said. As Olaska turned to leave, Wild attempted to stop him, and Olaska then fatally stabbed him in the heart, authorities said. A bar employee named Rafael Castaneda who attempted to step in was stabbed in the arm, a wound that required many stitches to close, Diamond said. [ChicagoTrib via @beerinator]

Question is: Which did Olaska find more offensive: the beer being in the wine glass or the wine glass being used for beer?
Thanks for the clarification. Sounds even more f-ed up now…
According to the article the Olaska (the murderer) was drinking the beer out of the wine glass and the 2 football players ribbed him.
“Olaska was drinking beer from a wine glass, and Hayes ribbed him about
it, Assistant State’s Atty. Tim Diamond said in bond court.”
ChicagoTrib makes it sound like the beer drinker did the stabbing. ”

The first read misled me a bit. Olaska was drinking and Hayes ribbed him. Either way, what a stupid waste of the rest of your life, and the life of another.
Obviously an alcohol issue. From what I can see, 20% of the patrons in every bar are regularly being over-served. The most unusual thing about this incident is that it doesn’t happen every night.
Certain beers are in fact, best drunk from a flute, similar to a champagne glass. Why didn’t Olaska just inform Hayes of that?
1/ Olaska made fun of Hayes’ tight shirt. 2/ Hayes made fun of Olaska’s beer-in-wine-glass. 3/ Hayes & Olaska got into a tussle. 4/ Wild peaceably intervened. 5/ Hayes & Olaska shook hands. 6/ Olaska lunged at Hayes & Wild with a knife, slightly injuring them both. 7/ Olaska began to walk away. 8/ Wild attempted to stop Olaska from walking away. 9/ Olaska stabbed Wild in the heart, killing him. /// Obviously a lot bad decision-making on all sides
