NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WDRB) -- A 26-year-old New Albany man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing Saturday night.

According to a news release from Maj. Keith Whitlow with the New Albany Police Department, Charles A.

Powers, 32, of Clarksville around 9 a.m. Saturday as the two were arguing in a parked car near the White Castle in the 1700 block of East Spring Street.

A female who was with Powers drove Powers to Floyd Memorial Hospital in New Albany; he was later transferred to University Hospital in Louisville. Powers underwent emergency surgery at University Hospital for a chest wound. Police say he is expected to recover.
