LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man was arrested for allegedly stabbing his father.
According to police, James Jeffries, 32, thought his father was hitting on his girlfriend. Jeffries then tried to choke and stab his father in the neck. The victim put an arm up in defense and the knife stabbed his arm instead.
