An Evansville man is behind bars after a fight broke out at a family gathering, sending one person to the hospital with stab wounds.
According to the affidavit, 34-year-old Brett Rowans showed up at his grandma’s house to collect his Thanksgiving turkey.
Evansville police officers were dispatched to a house on Warren Drive in Evansville for domestic violence in progress.
According to the affidavit, Brennan Dunmire had called 911 to report that Rowans had stabbed him in the shoulder.
When officers arrived, they were told that Rowans wasn’t supposed to come to the house until after everybody was gone. However, he showed up early.
The affidavit says Dunmire and Rowans have a hostile history, and when Rowans confronted Dunmire about a previous incident, the two began to fight.
Dunmire told police that he felt a pinch in his shoulder during the altercation and realized he had been stabbed.
Dunmire then says he left to go to the hospital where he was treated for a laceration in his left shoulder.
The affidavit says Rowans admitted to the altercation but denies stabbing Dunmire. He was arrested without incident and charged with Battery-Committed with a Deadly Weapon and Communication-Intimidation.
