Two men are arrested after fight

HARLAN, Ky. (WYMT) - Two Harlan County men are in jail after an argument turned physical.

Police say the argument started over $500 that was allegedly taken from 27-year-old Dwayne Harris's home.

The argument led to Harris allegedly filling up a bath tub and forcing a woman's head under water.

22-year old Christopher Yount allegedly stabbed Harris in the leg with a butcher knife.

Harris is facing several charges including unlawful imprisonment and first-degree assault.

He is being held in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $20,000 bond.

Yount, who faces an assault charge, bonded out of jail.
