'The Wire' Star Anwan Glover

Stabbed and Beaten

Inside a DC Nightclub

8/3/2014 11:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0803-anwan-glover-getty-02"The Wire" star Anwan Glover was stabbed inside a Washington DC nightclub early Sunday morning.

Glover -- who played Slim Charles -- was in Cafe Asia when he claims 2 men started beating him.  He says he heard someone scream, "He has a knife," and then felt a sharp pain.

Glover -- who also appeared in "Twelve Years a Slave" -- was taken to a local hospital with lacerations and bruises.

It's unclear why the fight started ... or the relationship between the men who beat and stabbed him.

We're told Anwar is still in the hospital and currently undergoing some tests.

Anwar's rep says he appreciates everyone's concerns, adding, "It's helping him get through this."

Let me guess, this joint is a sophisticated art space and was hosting a black tie wine and cheese tasting? No? Typical.

You know, Glover is lucky he didn't get shot given it was Washington D.C. Wish him a fast recovery and, honestly, he's very lucky.

Hope he is okay. But I have a quick question for the people that have seen "The Wire". I started watching it a few weeks ago. And to be honest, by episode 7 I was bored to tears and stopped. Does it get better? Should I try it again? Or am I supposed to find people getting beat up edgy? Because if the rest of it is anything like the first few episodes, I'm not interested.
