Ardmore man arrested after allegedly stabbing man in traffic altercation
An Ardmore man was apprehended Monday night after allegedly stabbing one individual and causing minor injuries to another during an alleged altercation over “reckless driving.”
At around 11:20 p.m., Ardmore Police Department Sgt. Larry Payne said officers were dispatched to the 600 block of A St. NW in reference to a disturbance where an individual had been stabbed.
When police arrived on scene, Payne said the suspect, 18-year-old Jack Garrison, was being held down by several witnesses to the alleged assault. Garrison was taken into custody at that time and a victim who had been stabbed in the stomach was transported to Mercy Hospital in Ardmore.
“There were no major injuries and he’s since been released from the hospital earlier today,” Payne said.
Another victim was treated and released for a laceration to their hand. Payne said police believe the subjects involved were fighting over “reckless driving” and Garrison allegedly pulled out a pocket-knife during the altercation.
“It was just a regular pocket-knife-style knife, not anything too long,” Payne said.
Garrison is currently being held at the Carter County Jail for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Felony charges were filed against Garrison on Tuesday. His bond is set at $2,500 and a preliminary conference is scheduled for March 19.
