Region 8 Man Charged with Assault for Stabbing Neighbor

AUGUST 22, 2006 - Posted at 7:30 a.m. CDT

 

HORSESHOE BEND, AR - A Horseshoe Bend man has been charged with two counts of first-degree battery for allegedly stabbing a neighbor who was making faces at him.

Howard Edward Foreman was charged with battery for the stabbing, which police say happened Thursday.  The victim, 31-year-old Darrell Estes, remains in serious condition at Baxter Regional Medical Center in Mountain Home.

Horseshoe Bend Police Chief Fred Mitchell, Jr. says Estes was stabbed in the lower right abdomen and right armpit.

Police were called to Foreman's home early Thursday morning.  According to an affidavit filed in Izard County Circuit Court, when police arrived, Estes was sitting in a lawn chair, bleeding from the stab wound.

The affidavit says the neighbors were drinking together when Estes and Foreman got into an argument.  Estes went home, but apparently made faces out the window toward Foreman.  The affidavit says that Foreman then went next door and stabbed Estes.

Foreman was arrested after the incident and remains in the Izard County Jail.
