David “Heavy D” Wiercinski, 36, faces a felony charge of aggravated battery in connection with the stabbing.

A customer who stabbed the owner of an East Naples auto repair shop Monday told detectives he intends to go back and shoot the victim, according to an arrest report.

David “Heavy D” Wiercinski, 36, faces a felony charge of aggravated battery in connection with the stabbing.

The 50-year-old business owner told Collier County sheriff’s deputies that Wiercinski had taken a friend’s car to be repaired last week at his shop, the House of Dazzle, 4227 Arnold Ave. On Monday afternoon, Wiercinski returned to the shop and requested the owner loan him a motorized bicycle until the car could be repaired, according to an arrest report.

The owner denied Wiercinski’s request, saying the bicycle was not safe to ride at the time. The two then got into an argument that turned physical, deputies reported.

The owner said Wiercinski pulled out a knife and began swinging at him. He then pulled out his own knife to defend himself, according to an arrest report.

When deputies got to the shop, they found the owner with blood on his shirt and arms and Wiercinski trying to ride away on a bicycle. Wiercinski, who had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol, was holding a blood-covered 12-pack of beer, reports stated.

Wiercinski, who was cut by the owner’s knife, was taken to NCH Downtown Naples Hospital for treatment, deputies said. Wiercinski told detectives when he was released he was “going to put a gun in (the owner’s) face and kill that guy!” according to reports.

He also said the owner was the aggressor.

Wiercinski, of the 100 block of South Heathwood Drive, Marco Island, remained in jail Tuesday in lieu of a $10,000 bond. His bond on a March DUI charge was revoked at a hearing Tuesday afternoon.
