Joke Leads to Accused Stabbing in Louisa

A joke that one person didn’t find funny has led a Lawrence County man being arrested on felony charges.

It is not known who told the joke Saturday night in Louisa, but an altercation followed.

Troopers arrested Matt Savage who is accused of stabbing a man who was attempting to stop the attack involving a male juvenile.

The incident went outside where Savage is alleged to have said he was going to cut the youth from “ear to ear” and calling him a racial slur.
