Police said they found two men who had been fighting; one allegedly attacked the other with a hatchet.

Officials said the argument may have been over a light bulb and alcohol may have been involved.

According to police, the 51-year-old suspect ended the argument by burying the hatchet in the other man.

The victim's injuries are non-life-threatening, according to officials.

The suspect is behind bars facing multiple felonies.

Police said they have been called to this home numerous times over the years, including an incident last May where a suspect allegedly held a woman against her will and assaulted her.

Officers said the suspect in that alleged attack was the victim in the ax incident.

    This is very embarrassing that this kind of stuff happens at my family’s house with people who shouldn’t even he living there. I live there with myson aand we’re two very nice individuals. This house is not bad, the people who live here are not bad either, some of the choices that people make that live here are bad choices. So when Fox13 news puts this house I live in on the news and make a it look like a crazy house, it makes me and my son look like some kind of crazy or bad person. Usually they don’t even put the whole true story down because obviously they weren’t there and didn’t know exactly what was going on.. So no it was not just over a light bulb!!! But yet its still stupid to be making innocent people look like there part of the actions that go on here and share it to public. Of course people are guna assume that everyone in the house is part of everything that goes on here.
