Cops: Christy Martin's Husband Stabs Himself

Cops in Apopka, Florida claim they got a tip about James Martin's whereabouts earlier today -- so they sent a K-9 unit and a helicopter into the area to track the guy down.

Officials say they found the 66-year-old in the woods behind his home, wielding a knife -- and suffering from what appeared to be a self inflicted stab wound.

Initially, Martin refused to surrender -- but after a brief stand off with police, he eventually gave up and turned himself in.

Christy is still recovering from last week's attack -- but according to her rep, the injuries "are not life-threatening."

The StabMeister. Seems he's pretty crappy at it, though. On second thought, maybe he should just be called the SuperficialCutMeister.

This guy can't do anything right. Lock him up in a loony bin and throw away the key. Glad she survived.

"...stabbing himself behind his home." Where, exactly is "behind the home" on the human body?

Why in the world would anyone stab themselves? Seems like an awfully painful and slow way to go, more of the "cry for help" option.

She's not taking him back, she's in love with a woman and was leaving him for her.
