Joey Greco got stabbed in 2003

Joey made his television debut in 2002 via the weekly syndicated reality TV series, Cheaters. In early 2003, he got into a controversial incident while filming an episode of Cheaters.

Joey got into a verbal argument with a man after boarding on his boat and accusing him of cheating on his girlfriend. The man first asked Joey and the crew to get off the board, but after a sudden scuffle, the man allegedly stabbed Joey. The man was subdued by the crew members, and Joey was quickly taken to the shore by another boat to receive urgent medical care.

Several years after the incident took place, on November 3, 2009, the man’s girlfriend accused that the scene was staged. Moreover, John Ellison, a member of the Rowlett Police Department, stated that no arrests were made at that time for a crime of that type. The program’s investigative reporter approached Greco to find out the truth, but Greco refused to answer any of the reporter’s questions saying that he was legally bound to not comment.

Since then, Greco has often been referred to as “the guy from Cheater who got stabbed on camera.” He has been unable to shake off his image till date even after departing from the show in 2012.
