Impersonator accused of attempted murder of rival

UPI News Service, 06/14/2013 

A Serge Gainsbourg impersonator in France said at his Friday trial for the attempted murder of a Johnny Hallyday impersonator that killing was not his goal.

Denis Colnot, who is known for his impersonations of late rocker Gainsbourg at talent contests, admitted Friday in court he stabbed Johnny Hallyday impersonator Michel Pacchiana in July 2011 outside of the Epinal apartment building where they both live, Radio France Internationale reported Friday.

"I admit the stabbing, but I didn't mean to kill him," Colnot told the court.

Authorities said Colnot was on his balcony and shouted insults at Pacchiana when he spotted the other man mowing the lawn. Police said he then grabbed a kitchen knife and attacked Pacchiana, stabbing him in the neck and narrowly missing a major artery.

Pacchiana said Colnot was upset about constantly losing to him in talent competitions.
