An Elizabethton man was arrested early Sunday morning on charges that he cut three people with a knife at a Johnson City night club.
Jeremy Peters, 33, 102 Runion St., Elizabethon, was charged with three counts of aggravated assault after the incident at Next Door, 413 W. Walnut St.
Police were called to the club about 12:25 a.m. In a news release, police said Peters showed up at Sycamore Shoals Hospital's emergency room in Elizabethton with cuts to his hands and advising he had been involved in a stabbing in Johnson City.
Witnesses told police an altercation began when Peters offended the daughter of a man working the door at Next Door. After several attempts to remove Peters from the premises, he finally ended up outside and another altercation between Peters, the girl's father and a Next Door employee began. Peters cut three people with a knife, police said.
Peters was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $45,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance Monday.
