TELL CITY - A Friday-night fight inside the Alpine led to the arrest of a man on several charges, Assistant Tell City Police Chief John Allen said Tuesday.

Joel Barnett, 47, of 1047 Ninth St. faces charges of battery, criminal recklessness and aggravated battery. He allegedly pulled a knife during an altercation and stabbed Danny Henson.

Barnett was arrested at his home and lodged in the Perry County Jail. A knife was recovered at Barnett's home, Allen said, which may have been used to cut Henson, who suffered small puncture wounds to his forearm and palm but refused treatment.
