Bautista, who won a Daytime Emmy for his producing work on the online soap opera “The Bay,” was accused of stabbing his tenant, identified in the media as Colton Haymes, after the two argued about Bautista’s Oscar-winning potential.

According to the district attorney’s office, Bautista “stabbed his tenant in the chest after the victim laughed when the defendant said he would win five Academy Awards, according to court testimony.”

In an odd twist of the knife, Bautista had previously written and starred in an independent movie about a landlord who killed his tenants, per evidence produced in court.

“When he said ‘five Oscars,’ we all kind of laughed a little bit, and he got really upset,” Haymes said.
