KNOX CO., IN (WFIE) -

Tuesday evening, around 10:30 p.m., Indiana State Police and Bicknell Police responded to 307 East 2nd Street in Bicknell for a fight in progress.

Authorities say when officers arrived they found Tyson Hartzburg, 22, inside the residence and he was extremely intoxicated.

Officials say further investigation revealed Hartzburg became out of control, stabbed his step-father, Lee Miller, with a pair of scissors during an argument and allegedly threatened to kill his parents.

Miller received a minor injury to his arm and was not hospitalized.

Officers say they also found drug paraphernalia that allegedly belonged to Hartzburg.

Authorities say since Hartzburg was extremely intoxicated he had to be checked by hospital staff at Good Samaritan Hospital before being incarcerated.

Hartzburg is currently being held on bond in the Knox County Jail.
