LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been arrested after police say he stabbed a man at a St. Matthews pool hall Sunday afternoon.

According to an arrest report, it happened Nov. 9 at Diamond Pub & Billiards on Frankfort Avenue, near Chenoweth Lane, just before 4:30 p.m. Louisville Metro Police say an officer was called to the pub after a stabbing had been reported.

When the officer arrived, St. Matthews Police already had 48-year-old Stephen Neff in custody. Witnesses allegedly told police that Neff was "causing a disturbance" at the bar and the bartender asked him to leave. He allegedly refused and put his hand in her face, so the bartender called the cook, who also served as the bouncer. The cook then asked Neff to leave.

According to the arrest report, Neff refused, and when the bouncer tried to remove him by force, a fight ensued. That's when, police say, Neff pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed the bouncer in the abdomen.

Neff was arrested and charged with first degree assault. The condition of the victim is not known.
