JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Police arrested a Jonesboro man after they say he stabbed his wife during an argument.

Shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday officers were called to the emergency room of St. Bernards Healthcare where a 35-year-old woman was being treated for a stab wound.

The victim told officers she and her husband, 43-year-old Darrell D. Ervin, were arguing at their home in the 300-block of North Drake when he picked up a kitchen knife and cut her arm.

After cutting her, she said Ervin ran out of the house.

According to the initial incident report, she said he was going to the 300-block of North Allis.

The victim told police Ervin had been drinking beer and gin all day.

She then provided officers with a detailed description of Ervin, including what he was wearing.

She also said he had two tattoos on his right arm of a beehive and the word “diamond.”

Officers traveled to a location on North Allis where they found several people standing in the parking lot, the report stated.

One officer noticed a man fitting Ervin’s description and asked for his name.

According to the report, the man said his name was “Michael.”

The officer said he raised the right sleeve of the man’s shirt and saw a beehive tattoo on his upper arm, matching the victim’s description.

He stated Ervin had a strong odor of intoxicants, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.

Police arrested Ervin and took him to the Craighead County Detention Center where he was cited for outstanding warrants and given a cash-only bond $3,917.

Ervin is awaiting a bond hearing for the charges of second-degree domestic battering, public intoxication, and obstructing governmental operations.
