Update: Harry Potter Fan Stabs a Guy at Comic-Con

Ladies and gentlemen, your first assault of Comic-Con 2010: A dude in a Harry Potter shirt reportedly stabbed another attendee in the face with a pen for refusing to switch seats, delaying tonight's much-anticipated Marvel panel. [Update 2: New reports are downgrading the attack to a "severe scratching."] Police removed the alleged assailant from Comic-Con's 6,000-capacity Hall H in handcuffs (see video here!); the victim was wheeled out on a stretcher.

Update: And minutes later, comedian Harrison Ford surprised the crowd by appearing onstage flanked by police and wearing handcuffs. Too soon? [News Briefs/EW, Zap2It, Movieline]
