A Baton Rouge man was arrested in the stabbing of another man after the two got into a fight during an apartment complex parking lot party, according to an East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s report.
Anthony Wilson, 42, was arrested Monday in a stabbing that the victim said occurred after he accused Wilson of “messing up with drug and alcohol use,” which angered Wilson, according to the report.
The victim told deputies that Wilson tackled him, throwing him to the ground and he believed Wilson was punching him, but once he got up and started to walk away, he realized he had been stabbed, the report said.
The victim was treated for stab wounds to the chest and released from the hospital, the report says.
Deputies noted in their report that they interviewed the victim after he left the hospital and that the victim appeared to be intoxicated.
Wilson told deputies he stabbed Wilson in self-defense, according to the report. He said the victim was “always coming around his residence, uninvited and causing problems,” the report says.
Wilson said on the night of the incident, the victim was drunk and started arguments with others at the party, including Wilson, according to the report.
Wilson told deputies the victim armed himself with a tire tool and hid it in his pants, and when the victim reached for the tool, Wilson reacted by pulling out a pocket knife and stabbing him, according to the report.
Deputies booked Wilson, 1926 Jasper Ave., into Parish Prison on a count of aggravated second-degree battery.
